What is the Point-In-Time Count?

The Point in Time (PIT) Count is a biennial tally of people without a home on a particular night. The results of the PIT count shape the county’s approach to ending homelessness. The PIT consists of 3 components:

  • Counting unsheltered homeless
  • Interviewing unsheltered homeless,
  • Counting sheltered homeless


Why does it matter?

OC receives over 20 million dollars in HUD funding to house the homeless; in order to continue receiving these funds OC has to provide the PIT information every 2 years. The information is also used by elected officials, non-profits and private funders to guide the provision of services for the homeless.


When is the Point-In-Time Count?

Saturday, January 28, from 4:30 am to 9:00 am
