WHAT is the PIT Count?
A confidential survey of residents experiencing homelessness in Central Oregon.
WHO should take the survey? I’m not sure I should participate. What do you mean by homeless?
We will be surveying people who are in the following living situations:
- Sleeping outside
- Staying in a shelter or emergency housing
- Staying in a hotel or motel that’s paid for by an agency or program
- Living in a vehicle, tent, camper, RV (with no hook ups), or abandoned building
- Living in a trailer, barn, shed or garage on a relative’s or friend’s property
- Temporarily living with relatives, friends, or others, or couch-surfing
WHEN is the PIT Count?
Wednesday, January 23rd, 2019. Surveys may be conducted anytime between January 23rd -25th on where people resided on the night of January 23rd, 2019.
WHERE will surveys be conducted?
Sites throughout Central Oregon including churches, social service organizations, food banks, etc. Volunteers may also seek out sites where unsheltered people reside to survey them, such as camp sites and parks.
WHY is there a PIT Count?
The results of this count will help bring funds for services to Central Oregon so that we can help unsheltered families and individuals to obtain housing services. The PIT Count captures experiences and needs of our homeless population so that we can educate our community and improve services.
PIT Counts will be taking place January 23rd, January 24th, and January 25th, depending on location.
