The Numbers

Point in Time Survey:

The following is a reflection of the data collected during the 2019 Point-in-Time (PIT)-- a "snapshot" count of those experiencing homelessness on one night during the last two weeks of January (in 2019, the PIT was conducted on January 23).  This is a requirement of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.  The table below provides a comparison of the past three years.
