Union Gospel Mission is Coming to Coeur d’Alene

The Need: Statistics on Homelessness in Kootenai County

Kootenai County does not currently have a long-term residential recovery center for women and children. The need for such a center is clear from the statistics below, and as Phil states in the video above: “We’re excited to bring a spiritual dimension where God can transform lives.”

  • The number of homeless individuals living in northern Idaho has increased by 54% from 2009 to 2010.
  • 644 homeless individuals were counted on a single night in January 2010.
  • 27% of these individuals were living in shelters; 73% were without shelter.
  • 43% were female.
  • 21% were under 18.
  • From 2007 to 2010, statistics showed an 89% increase in the total number of homeless individuals and a 173% increase in the number of those individuals who were unsheltered.

(Statistics from the 2010 Point-in-Time Count Report for Region One, Idaho’s five northern counties.)
