Unsheltered Point-In-Time Count (PITC)
a.k.a. "Homeless Count"

Why We Count

1. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) requires that each Continuum of Care (CoC) perform a Point-in-Time Count of all its sheltered and unsheltered homeless individuals and families.  The count is necessary for the CoC funding application along with other non-HUD funding sources.  Performing the count is important to obtain current and accurate data on the number and characteristics of homeless individuals and families. This information influences policy, program planning, and justifies funding requests.


2. To reach and serve those in our county in need of assistance.
