Point-in-Time Count Implementation

This course provides guidance and tools to support the final implementation of a Point-in-Time (PiT) Count, as well as the day of the count. In this phase, communities obtain any supplies needed for the count, assign volunteers to teams and provide training, set up their headquarters, and conduct the count. This is Part 3 in a four-part series:

1. PIT Count Planning 

2. PIT Count Preparation

3. PIT Count Implementation

4. PIT Count – Post Count 

A Point-in-Time Count is a one-day snapshot of homelessness in each community that contributes to a national picture and advance the knowledge on homelessness. It provides a community-wide measure of homelessness, identifying service needs and informing plans to prevent and reduce homelessness. When completed over subsequent years, it can also be used to track changes in the homeless population over time and measure progress in reducing it.
