What is the Point in Time Count?
The Point-in-Time Count, or PIT Count, is an annual survey of homeless individuals in the United States conducted by local agencies called Continuums of Care (CoCs) on behalf of the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development. HUD uses the data from PIT counts to evaluate the effectiveness of local agencies’ efforts to address homelessness and to determine funding amounts for them,
When is the Count?
The 2022 Annual Point in Time Count is scheduled for the mornings of January 27 and 28 from (approximately) 4:00 a.m. to 7:00 a.m.
Who is Involved?
The Iron County Local Homeless Council is charged with organizing the annual count and will host training and informational sessions for volunteers.
What does the Count Involve?
We will section out locations in our community and assign volunteer teams to visit those areas, locate individuals living unsheltered and proceed through a short list of questions about their situation.
What if it Snows?
The count will take place regardless of weather. Homelessness happens every day and night of the year in spite of weather.
