TODAY at both - Ottumwa Ymca and Blessings Soup Kitchen from 11-3pm Wapello County Point In Time Count is taking place.

If you know anyone who is experiencing homelessness please let them know to go either location for a meal and to participate in the count.

When our county can report accurate numbers of people experiencing homelessness we can work to get the funding we need to support our community.
