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.
