PIT Service Count
Service providers and volunteers continued to survey community members January 30 - February 4 to determine the total number of people who experienced homelessness on January 29, 2020. 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.
