The Point-in-Time Homeless Count
A Point-in-Time (PIT) count is a statistically reliable count of people experiencing homelessness during a 24-hour period within the last 10 days of January. The count includes both sheltered homeless (those living in emergency shelters or transitional housing) and unsheltered homeless (those living in places deemed not suitable for human habitation).
In order to have an effective count it is vital to have dedicated volunteers to participate in our efforts. Not only are volunteers necessary for the actual count, but they are also important factors in the events leading up to the count as well.
