- A federal report tells us fewer people in Wisconsin need help finding a place to call home.
It showed the number of homeless people has declined slightly.
The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development made the report to Congress.
It comes from a one-night count by local homeless advocacy agencies.
Wisconsin's report says the number of homeless people declined nearly 1 percent this year compared to 2013.
It's dropped about 4 percent from 2010.
There were 6,055 homeless people found in Wisconsin during the January count.
A bright spot might be the number of homeless veterans in Wisconsin.
That number declined 10 percent from last year.
