What is the Point-In-Time Count?
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 and transitional housing on a single night.
PIT data can provide insight into a community’s homeless population and service gaps. It provides a “snap shot” of what homelessness looks like on a single night in our community.
