Despite the unseasonably warm weather this week in Oregon, the Egan Warming Centers in Eugene and Springfield plan to activate Wednesday night. Four shelters will be open for the national one-night homeless count.
Egan volunteer Shelley Corteville says others will be out in the community counting people without homes.
Corteville: "This count is very important because it helps bring in money to communities for homeless services."
Federal funds are allocated to counties based on the number of homeless people.
