Tupelo gives $45K to group trying to end homelessness

TUPELO, Miss. (AP) – A Mississippi city is contributing to a private group that is trying to end homelessness.

The Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal reports the Tupelo City Council has voted to give $45,000 to Mississippi United to End Homelessness.

The group does not operate a shelter or serve meals. Instead, it focuses on moving people off the streets into permanent, stable housing.

Organizers say the group found homes for 27 people in Tupelo from February until early November.

A census to count homeless people is planned for January.
