POINT-IN-TIME HOMELESS COUNT

The Point-in-Time (PIT) count is a count of sheltered and unsheltered homeless persons on a single night in January. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) requires that Continuums of Care (CoCs) conduct an annual count of homeless persons who are sheltered in emergency shelter, transitional housing, and Safe Havens on a single night. CoCs also must conduct a count of unsheltered homeless persons at least biannually (odd numbered years). Each count is planned, coordinated, and carried out locally, usually by the CoC. The Housing Inventory Count (HIC) is a point-in-time inventory of provider programs within a CoC that provide beds and units dedicated to serve persons who are homeless, categorized by five Program Types: Emergency Shelter; Transitional Housing; Rapid Re-housing; Safe Haven; and Permanent Supportive Housing.

Volunteers wishing to participate in the Point-in-Time Count must attend the training on January 15, 2019. Volunteers will also be required to sign a confidentiality agreement.
