Lowndes Associated Ministries to People, also known as LAMP, is preparing to tally everyone who's homeless in Lowndes and nine other counties.
Officials estimate many people with no place to go are unaccounted for and it's essential to identify them.
Every year, Congress gives money to the state to help fight homelessness and this tally is an essential way lawmakers decide how much funding to provide.
LAMP will begin counting its homeless population January 23.
