Point-in-Time Count

The 2024 Point-in-Time (PIT) Count will count people experiencing homelessness on Wednesday January 24, 2024. The 2024 PIT Count Methodology was approved by the OCPEH Leadership Team at the December 2023 meeting and details how Orange County will complete the count.

PIT Service Count
Service providers and volunteers continue
to survey community members January 25 - January 31 to determine the total number of people who experienced homelessness on January 24, 2024. Here is more information on the service count:


The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) requires communities across the United States to conduct a Point-in-Time (PIT) count each year to determine the number of people experiencing homelessness in local communities. The PIT uses survey data collected from individuals and families about their living situation and background and information from service providers to assemble a complete picture of everyone experiencing homelessness on a particular night, usually the last Wednesday in January. Find 2023 PIT Count data here.


We ask that people interested in volunteering for the 2024 PIT Unsheltered Count on January 24, 2024 contact for more information.
