"You go to the post office every day and you're really hopeful," said Rhonda Ford, executive director of Miriam's House, a long-term shelter for homeless women and children.
Ford was pleasantly surprised when she recently received a $1,000 check from a grantor she had never heard of before. | Recording life on the streets, 12 April 2006 [cached]
The data was part of a report Tuesday by Rhonda Ford to the Central Virginia Homeless and Housing Coalition, a group of about 50 organizations.
The annual "point-in-time" count was 289, said Ford, coalition steering committee chairwoman.
A point-in-time count is a kind of snapshot of one day's population in emergency shelters and transitional housing, as well as the homeless who are not living in a sheltered setting.
The overall homeless numbers were boosted to 394 by an additional 105 children who were identified by the Lynchburg City Schools as being homeless, Ford said in her report.
This year's count of 289 includes evictions for the first time.The number, taken from court dockets, is people evicted on the day of the count, Jan. 25, said Ford, director of Miriam's House, a transitional program for women.
Last year's total count was 192 - without the Lynchburg City Schools information or the evictions.
With the additional data, the count is "getting a lot closer to what we would expect to find in Lynchburg compared to other communities our size with our same demographics," Ford said at Tuesday's coalition meeting.
According to Treney Tweedy, spokesman for Lynchburg City Schools, the homeless students would include children who are living with a friend, relative or other person because they have either lost their home, or can't afford housing.
Ford also said the overall homeless numbers are beginning to include more of the "unsheltered homeless."
"We've been trying to capture this figure for years," she said. | A gift through music, 4 June 2004 [cached]
Last week Rhonda Ford, the executive director of Miriam's House, could only shake her head and smile as she listened to the song, the poignant, mid-tempo "Children of a Lesser God."
"I am a little overwhelmed," she said.

Rhonda Ford is executive director of Miriam's House in Lynchburg.
Ford was caught by surprise when the CVCS board announced the closing.
It is not unusual for someone to enter Miriam's House after coming through the 28-day CVCS program, she said.That meant assurance of nearly a month of clean time - but even then a woman can be very fragile in recovery.
Miriam's House doesn't expect instant cures, "because of the nature of the disease," she said."We see recidivism in the homeless population" she said, but they've also seen successes that continue in their success.
"This is going to impact homeless programs," she said.
