Point-In-Time Count January 26, 2022
Every year, communities across the nation conduct the HUD mandated count of persons experiencing homelessness on a single night in January. The 2022 Point-In-Time (PIT) Count was held in Wake County Continuum of Care on the night of January 26, 2022.
Teams of Street Outreach workers and volunteers visited encampments, outreach centers, and areas of common congregation to look for people experiencing homelessness. They conducted a quick survey on their smartphone and gave the person a backpack of essential items and helpful resources to let them know we care.
Why is the PIT Count Important?
This count provides our community valuable data on the number of people experiencing unsheltered and sheltered homelessness, as well as trends in demographics, veteran status, and chronic homelessness over time.
Our data tells a story by collecting accurate, real-time data on people experiencing homelessness, we can create a strategy for developing the resources to meet identified housing and services needs in Wake County.
