WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- A coalition of community groups in Wichita is holding a homeless count and hosting an event offering services for the city's homeless families.

The event runs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Thursday at the Century II expo hall in Wichita.

Volunteers will interview homeless individuals to count them and gather information. Services will include haircuts, flu shots and dental screenings; distribution of information about housing and benefits; and a giveaway of socks, hats and gloves.

United Way of the Plains is coordinating the count. It's designed to measure the size and scope of Wichita's homeless problem in order to plan services and gauge progress in addressing the issue.
