2017 Central Oregon Point in Time Count

2017 HUD Homeless Count Results - Press Release | PIT Results Summary

The Homeless Leadership Coalition (HLC) will be kicking off the Point-In-Time Count in Central Oregon on January 25, 2017. This event is a count of people who are homeless - both sheltered and unsheltered - or in transitional housing in Deschutes, Crook, and Jefferson counties. The count is a part of a State and national effort to identify the number of people struggling to find appropriate and adequate housing.  

“Starting on Wednesday, January 25t​h​, volunteers will be conducting confidential and anonymous surveys in Bend, La Pine, Sisters, Redmond, Prineville and Madras,” says Molly Taroli, PacificSource’s CCO Project Coordinator and HLC Chairperson. “This count will provide the most up-to-date information about the number of individuals in Central Oregon who are struggling to find adequate housing. Through this data, local agencies and programs will be able to better target support services and develop comprehensive plans to address poverty and homelessness in Central Oregon.”

Individuals and families counted through this effort include people living in:

  • Weekly motels

  • Shelters

  • Transitional housing

  • "Doubled up" with other families

  • Camping or sleeping in cars

  • Living in an RV without utilities

  • Other places not designed for human habitation

Counts will be taking place on January 25t​h​, 26t​h​, and 27t​h​, depending on location. Locations and times can be found in the complete Press Release.
