The H3 Research, Evaluation, and Data (RED) Team is responsible for the administrative oversight of data collection, reporting, and analysis. The RED Team manages the Homeless Management Information System (HMIS) database, plans and implements the annual Point-in-Time Count, and analyzes, reports and evaluates demographic, programmatic and outcome data. For more information about data and reports, email H3REDTeam@cchealth.org.
Continuum of Care Annual Report
Health, Housing, and Homeless Services (H3) produces an annual report each calendar year for the Council on Homelessness to describe the populations served and service utilization within the CoC. The 2021 annual report summarizes 1) the CoC's response to COVID-19 to meet local mandates and ensure the safety of people experiencing homelessness and staff, 2) data on individuals and households experiencing homelessness, program utilization, and outcomes, and 3) Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Performance Measures for Fiscal Year 20/21.
Point-In-Time Homeless Count
The Point-in-Time (PIT) Count is an annual census and survey to identify the sheltered and unsheltered homeless population across the County. This count is required for all recipients of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) funding. The PIT Count takes place during the last week of January each year.
As a result of significant inconsistencies discovered in the data, Contra Costa Health is currently unable to verify the accuracy of the 2022 PIT count. CCH is working diligently to resolve the problem. For current data regarding homelessness in Contra Costa, please review the Continuum of Care Annual Report.
Analysis of sub-populations within the CoC help improve our understanding of the consumers' needs, utilization of services, and opportunities to improve equity within the system of care. Data highlights offer a summary of new analyses or sub-populations of interest. These reports are generally on "hot topics," including but not limited to, homelessness, housing, and disparities.
H3 is adopting a streamlined process for accepting, processing, and responding to requests for data and reports. Before submitting a request, please look online to make sure the data is not already available. The 2020 Comprehensive Annual Report includes: PIT data, a summary of service data utilization, trends in numbers served and sub-populations, race/ethnicity assessment, and program outcomes.
