The United Way is training volunteers from the university to help gather information on the needy in the area.
"The purpose is to is to build a healthy lifestyle for the homeless," said United Way campaign director Mary Brewbaker. "And that's part of our long term planning, to get people off the streets, and get them into a full service facility so they can get training. They can get skills and they can find that stability that they've been looking for."
