CHIPPEWA FALLS SEES INCREASE IN HOMELESSNESS

CHIPPEWA FALLS SEES INCREASE IN HOMELESSNESS

Homelessness is increasing in Chippewa Falls.

You may have been paging thought the paper and see The Herald reporting in the past 15-months the number of homeless people coming into the L.E. Phillips Career Development Center has quadrupled.

Director Jennifer Barrett says 150-people came in for help in April, the highest number this year.  Barret also says the homeless are fairly hidden in Chippewa County, so the public might not be aware of the growing problem.
