Locally known as EveryOne Counts!, the Point-In-Time Count of individuals and families experiencing homelessness records the number of people staying in shelters and transitional housing on a given night in late January each year and estimates the number of people who are unsheltered, living outdoors on that same night every two years. Conducting a Count is a requirement of receiving federal homeless assistance funds. Most importantly, it gives our community useful and critical data for strategic, program, and policy and fiscal planning.
On January 30th, 2019 we conducted the Point-In-Time Count with the help of nearly 500 volunteers, over 100 homeless guides and many others.
