    Philadelphia’s homeless census postponed

    The weather has forced Project H.O.M.E. to cancel its annual count of homeless people in Philadelphia.

    The numbers are reported federal Housing and Urban Development Department.

    The annual count is made up of two numbers: Those in shelters, and those on the streets.

    That shelter number is pretty easy to get — not so for those who stay outdoors.

    Workers will hit the street on Monday to get the count.

    The numbers are reported federal Housing and Urban Development Department.
