2021 Point In Time (PIT) Count

The Homeless Leadership Coalition (HLC) released the results of its 2021 Point In-Time Count, which provides a snap shot of homelessness in Central Oregon the night of January 20, 2021. This survey queries people experiencing homelessness, in transitional housing or at-risk of becoming homeless in Deschutes, Crook, and Jefferson counties and the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs. It is a part of a state and national effort to understand the scope of the crisis, the reasons for homelessness and the barriers people experiencing homelessness face in finding appropriate and adequate housing.

About Point in Time Count Methodology:

  • All data is self-reported.
  • Conducted for a single night of January ; surveys in 2021 and 2022 providers were able to ask for a window of time to record information about the single night
  • Service providers and volunteers surveyed people accessing services via shelters, transitional housing, at meal sites and food banks, drop-in centers, health clinics, hotels/motels, and while conducting street outreach
    • Remote schooling limited our usual success with counting the youth population
  • Counts occurred in La Pine, Sunriver, Bend, Sisters, Redmond, Prineville, Madras and Warm Springs
  • Some years, in addition to the HUD required survey questions, Central Oregon may ask additional questions about causes of homelessness, where people were last stably housed, ability to access healthcare, and more.
