Point-in-Time Count

The Housing Forward led Point-in-Time Count is a federal initiative that is administered by municipalities throughout the country on an annual basis. Community volunteers take a count of unsheltered individuals in their communities and that data becomes the beacon that drives impactful decisions made by the homeless ecosystem.
