Understanding what regional data says about individuals and families experiencing homelessness is critical in building an effective community-wide response. For this reason, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) requires communities to conduct periodic counts of people experiencing homelessness. This data is compiled both locally and nationally to inform programs, planning, and funding. Homeward has coordinated Greater Richmond's Point-in-Time (PIT) count since 1999, and since 2007, has conducted both a summer and a winter count to better understand the changing nature of homelessness over time.
PIT data is published through snapshots, and is used to track trends across various subpopulations of homeless (veterans, families, chronic, etc.).
The Next Point in Time Count will be Thursday, July 27th!
