On a single night in January, about 1,079 older adults – those 55 and over – were homeless in Sacramento County, according to the results of the latest federally mandated census count.

About 700 of them were living outside, on the streets or beneath an underpass, or in an tent encampment. Seniors were more likely to sleep in the elements compared to the general homeless population in the county, the report found.
