Point in Time Count

Point in Time counts, conducted annually across the nation, usually at the end of January, provide a snapshot of unduplicated sheltered and unsheltered individuals and families experiencing homelessness on any given night as defined by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The count is a federally mandated census of the total population experiencing homelessness at a single point in time. HUD defines an individual as experiencing homelessness when they reside in places not meant for human habitation, in an emergency shelter or transitional housing, or when they lack the resources and/or support networks needed to obtain housing. The count includes only individuals willing to answer questions about their living status within a single 24-hour time period.
