Homeless Point-In-Time Count
Wednesday, January 27, 2021

The purpose of the HUD Point-in-Time (PIT Count) is to obtain a snapshot census of people experiencing homelessness in our community on one night in January.

The count includes people who, on the night of the count, are:

The PIT Count is an essential element in our effort to end homelessness, as the data gathered from this census shows us so much more than how many people are homeless in our community - we also learn more about who is homeless and why. The PIT Count presents a great opportunity to raise awareness of the myriad challenges our homeless citizens face, hear personal experiences from those experiencing homelessness, and demonstrate the compassion and generosity of our community!

COVID-19 Considerations

Your health and safety, as well as the safety of people experiencing homeless, is our priority. Enumerators are required to follow state and county public health guidelines when conducting the PIT Count, including social distancing when possible and wearing a mask at all times.

Enumerators are required to self-monitor for signs and symptoms of COVID-19 prior to Point-in-Time Count, and agree to not participate if they have COVID-19 related symptoms (i.e. Fever, coughing, shortness of breath, etc.) and to follow public health protocols if COVID-19 symptoms are experienced within 14 days after conducting the Point-in Time-Count.
