Point-In-Time Homeless Count

Latest Report | Archived Reports
The purpose of the Point-in-Time Count (PIT) is to measure homelessness over the course of one night, every January. Although the PIT doesn’t tell us everything about our community's needs, it does provide valuable information as to the scope of homelessness, particularly around the number of unsheltered people on the streets and the progress being made to end homelessness. It is also used by local agencies to help plan services and programs appropriately, address strengths and gaps, increase public awareness, and attract resources to help end homelessness.

Useful Links for Partner Agencies

* The Contra Costa Homeless Continuum of Care utilizes a web-based Homeless Management Information System (HMIS) which helps gives our collaboration of homeless agencies a better way to collect data, coordinate care, and manage operations. The HMIS can be used to produce an unduplicated count of homeless persons, understand patterns of service use, and measure the effectiveness of homeless programs in Contra Costa County. If your program serves homeless individuals or families and you would like to become an HMIS partner agency, please contact homelessprogram@hsd.cccounty.us
