What is the Point In Time count and why do we do it each year?
The Council for the Homeless conducts a county-wide “one-day homeless count” during the same week once each year. The count is known as the annual Point in Time (PIT) count. Many community partners and volunteers help with the PIT.
PIT provides a statistical snapshot of homelessness in our community and helps us understand trends and needs. It is required by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and by Washington state law.
