Welcome to the Point in Time home base for Iron County. We thank you for your willingness to participate in this task and know you will find great satisfaction in lending a hand to end homelessness and fight hunger.
Please complete the form and proceed to the required reading. We will add new information as we move through planning, please check back often.
The Point-in-Time (PIT) count is a count of sheltered and unsheltered homeless persons on a single night in January. HUD requires that Continuums of Care conduct an annual count of homeless persons who are sheltered in emergency shelter, transitional housing, and Safe Havens on a single night. Continuums of Care also must conduct a count of unsheltered homeless persons every other year (odd numbered years). Each count is planned, coordinated, and carried out locally. The Housing Inventory Count (HIC) is a point-in-time inventory of provider programs within a Continuum of Care 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.
NOTE: This year will be the baseline count of homeless youth
TRAINING DATE: Friday, January 13, 2017 – 12:00 – 1:00 p.m. at Iron County Care and Share (Shelter) located at 244 West 900 North in Cedar City. Please RSVP to Lee Larson.
