How many people are currently homeless in the United States? How many of them are families, youth, or veterans? The answers to these questions and more can be answered by point-in-time counts. A point-in-time count is an unduplicated count on a single night of the people in a community who are experiencing homelessness that includes both sheltered and unsheltered populations (Source).

The Gulf Coast Partnership will be conducting its annual PIT Count of sheltered homeless persons (people staying in Emergency Shelters, Transitional Housing, and Safe Havens) the evening of January 23rd after 6pm.  The unsheltered count will take place the morning of January 24th.

In the next few weeks we will be asking for volunteers and announcing training dates for the upcoming PIT Count.
