Point-In-Time Count for January 2019
We would not be able to conduct this count if it was not for our supportive community. We had close to 90 volunteers who took time out of their day to serve their community.
This one-day count is so very important for helping us in getting the data needed to secure the funding for the critical work of making homelessness Rare. Brief. Nonrecurring. in Abilene and Taylor County.
The Data for the 2019 PIT count is still being processed by Texas Homeless Network and this information will be released as soon as the data is completed.
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.
