The population of hungry-poor continues to be problematic throughout the country.HUD’s national homeless count for 2011 was 643,067, Washington State was 20,346 and Oregon was 22,116.  According to the Council for the Homeless, Vancouver, Washington, Clark County’s January 2011 official homeless street count tallied 834. There are many efficient social agencies and charitable organizations that are working to serve this population, yet the panhandlers are a more difficult subgroup for these agencies to service. Life Pax is designed to help these hard-to-reach individuals by providing a meal and contact information thereby potentially linking more of them to these services
