An affordable housing crunch continues in the Casper Area. The lack of affordable living space impacts the number of homeless in Natrona County.

Marilyn Diamond Wagner is executive director of Interfaith of Natrona County, which has provided emergency social services since 1985. Diamond-Wagner and Interfaith will be heading up the homeless point-in-time count set to take place at the end of January.

She says this year Natrona County will keep a separate count of those living doubled up.

“We are going out and finding people who are doubled up, because this year for HUD’s definition of homelessness they must be living in what the average person would consider an uninhabitable place.”

Past point-in-time counts had included those living doubled up, perhaps sleeping on a relatives couch as they await affordable housing.

She says this year they will also be working in cooperation with the cities of Lusk, Midwest, Gillette and Glenrock.
