The Annual Point in Time (PIT) count is the count of sheltered and unsheltered individuals and families experiencing homelessness on a single night in January.
HUD requires that all Continuums of Care designees conduct an annual count of people experiencing homelessness who are sheltered in emergency shelter, transitional housing, and Safe Havens on a single night, typically in late January.
We are also required to conduct a count of unsheltered people experiencing homelessness every other year (odd numbered years). We plan, coordinate, and oversee the local counts annually across Central Oregon.
