It was too good to be true. That's what some people thought after Hillsborough County found a drop in the number of homeless by nearly half in January. So they went back on the streets for another look.
So, almost 100 volunteers canvassed the county earlier this month. The surveying included birthdays, disabilities and the length of time they were on the streets. The final tally came to 2,275 homeless.
That's still a drop of 47 percent since the last count in 2011.
New Coalition CEO Maria Barcus says she was not part of the organization for the initial count.
