The Annual Point-In-Time Count of Homeless Persons

The Point-in-Time (PIT) count is a count of sheltered and unsheltered homeless persons on a single night in January. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development requires that Continuums of Care conduct an annual count of homeless persons who are sheltered in emergency shelter, transitional housing and Safe Havens on a single night. Continuums of Care also must conduct a count of unsheltered homeless persons every other year (odd numbered years). Each count is planned, coordinated and carried out locally, and provides a snapshot of homelessness on a single night within each community. The Partnership conducts both the sheltered and unsheltered count annually in the City of Alexandria.  See the 2012-2014 PIT Count Comparison

Also conducted is the Housing Inventory Count (HIC), a point-in-time inventory of provider programs within a Continuum of Care that provide beds and units dedicated to serve persons experiencing homelessness, categorized by five Program Types: Emergency Shelter; Transitional Housing; Rapid Re-housing; Safe Haven and Permanent Supportive Housing.
