2019 Point-In-Time Count

Posted on Jan 04, 2019

Fresno EOC is once again participating in the Annual Homeless Point-in-Time Count.

What is the Homeless Point-in-Time Count?

The 2019 Point-in-Time (PIT) count will help identify the housing and service needs of the homeless population in our community. This three-day effort will assist in the national goal of ending homelessness.

Why is counting the homeless important?

The annual Point-in-Time count assists us in understanding the extent of homelessness and changes among this population, measuring local performance and progress toward ending homelessness, planning future services and resources, complying with reporting requirements from funders, and generating public awareness and education. 

When is the Point-in-Time Count?

January 29 - 31, 2019

Who counts the homeless?

In order for the Point-in-Time Count to be successful, it will take an effort to recruit and train volunteers to canvass Fresno and Madera County streets and shelters to survey the county's most vulnerable homeless individuals and families.

You can be a volunteer. We need your help!
