(AP) -- John Parvensky, president of the Colorado Coalition for the Homeless, says officials are trying to establish a baseline count to let them see where the help is needed.

Some estimate the current amount of homeless people at 15-thousand. The last survey done in 1988 found that there were three-thousand-637.

Volunteers around the state will spend tonight and tomorrow morning counting, using a 26-question survey focusing on a person's homelessness and services they've used recently.

A second count will be on January 22nd to check the accuracy of the count and to adjust for the number of seasonal resort workers who are back on the job.
