MIDLAND-The Midland Homeless Coalition reports homeless numbers in Midland are estimated to be anywhere from 500 to 800 people.
Evan Rogers, who works with Church Under the Bridge Midland, said these numbers are nearly double what they were expecting.
It will prove difficult for the organizations who work with the homeless to provide services with the growing population.
President of the Coalition Linda Hamblin says a number of organizations, including The Salvation Army, are working on expansions to keep up with the growing homeless population.
