What is the Point-in-Time (PIT) Count?
During the PIT count we survey the community, count the number of people experiencing homelessness over a specified period. We then gather information on the demographics and service needs of the local homeless population. Learn more about the Point-in-Time Count in our community by visiting the Midlands Area Consortium for the Homeless website by clicking here.
Why do we do the PIT Count?
Through a snapshot of homelessness, the PIT Count will help us to better understand homelessness and housing needs. With successive counts, we can measure our progress in ending homelessness in our community.
