January Holt poses at the back door of Woodbury Heights, the condominium where she lives. The county plans to purchase the Thomas Building, in the background. The homeless shelter's entrance in that building would be just on the other side of the fence.
Supporters of a year-round "Comprehensive Homeless Services Center" wore T-shirts that said, "I helped end homelessness." The T-shirts came from a recent activity in which volunteers counted and interviewed the county's homeless population.
