KENTVILLE — Kings County will soon have a new strategy to address homelessness.

About $70,000 from the federal government's Homeless Partnering Strategy will be used by the Housing First Association of Kings County to assess the needs of those in the county who are homeless or at risk of being homelessness.

"The funding will be fundamental in helping the (association) realize its vision statement, that there will be safe, adequate, affordable and sustainable housing for all people in Kings County," association chairman Diana Brothers said in a news release.
