Point in Time Survey – Wednesday , January 25th-2017

i Jan 23rd No Comments by

The Point in Time Count of Unsheltered Persons Experiencing Homelessness (PIT Survey) will take place on Wednesday, January 25th, starting at sunset. This is an annual survey. It is done across the entire United States, and provides a snapshot of the number of homeless and unsheltered persons. The survey is performed the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), and the local Pike County lead agency for the 2017 survey is the Pike County Planning and Human Development Office. The survey is under the supervision of Executive Director Christine Kerstetter.

The Pike County Hands of Hope (PCHOH) will provide survey teams to seek unsheltered homeless persons throughout Pike County. Two-person teams from PCHOH will operate from 9:00m.

PCHOH President Jim Pierce said the teams would seek information from public safety officials as well as agencies, churches and other organizations that may have information on where homeless persons will be staying that evening. Typical places homeless persons spend time are parking lots of shopping centers, parks and campgrounds and abandoned buildings.

The survey is important because it locates persons who are members of our communities who desperately need assistance, provides hard data on homelessness in Pike County, adjacent communities, and throughout the state and country, and can lead to support of future funding to Pike County to address the needs of our less fortunate citizens. Homeless persons found in the survey can be given the advice and contacts they need to find suitable housing.

Mr. Pierce is asking the public to contact him via email at president@pikecountyhoh.org with leads or information they have on the location of specific unsheltered homeless persons in the community. This includes people sleeping in places such as parking lots, abandoned buildings or campsites, or placed in shelters or motel lodging by agencies. Persons staying with friends or relatives are not counted in the survey.

National Street and Shelter Point In Time Count

National Street and Shelter Point In Time Count
January 2017

January 25th is upon us, and that means the 2017Point-in-Time (PIT) Count is right around the corner. This year, in addition to their annual sheltered count, communities are required by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to conduct an unsheltered count of people sleeping in places unfit for human habitation, such as on the street or in a park.

As part of their preparation, communities around the country are training volunteers to conduct unsheltered counts. Unsheltered counts are generally conducted on a single night in January, which means that communities must rely on volunteers to find and count as many unsheltered homeless people as possible. Volunteers are critical to the unsheltered count process, as many communities wouldn’t be able to conduct unsheltered counts without them.

Counting unsheltered homeless people is a daunting task. Not only are many unsheltered homeless people hard to find, but members of some homeless subpopulations, like homeless youth and LGBTQ individuals, congregate in different areas than larger populations and may try to avoid being identified as homelessness. Locating them requires different strategies.
