This morning - one local group braved the cold temperatures to count the number of people who are homeless. It's required by the government - as part of a national census of the homeless population. This week - volunteers with the Homeless Coalition have been canvassing Duval, Nassau and Clay counties. This morning Channel 4's Kumasi Aaron caught up with a group in Jacksonville, she joins us live from downtown, Kumasi? 3 3 The group left at 3:30 this morning, they just got back here to the Salvation Army. About XXXX people spent hours trying to get an accurate count of the homeless in our area, but also trying to get more information from them so they can help those most in need. Joining me live this morning is Phylicia Christian with the Emergency Services and Homeless Coalition of Northeast Florida. 3 The group will be doing more canvasses like these over the next few weeks, not just here in Duval County but across our area.
