Point In Time Census

CoCs are tasked by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to track data on the homeless community in their area. These  Annual Point in Time counts provide an overview of the state of homelessness in a CoC, and offer the information necessary to redirect services, funding, and resources as necessary.

ARCH completes its Annual Point in Time count of people experiencing homelessness during the last week of January, in conjunction with its annual Homeless Connect resource fair.

A survey of vulnerability is also performed during this count to rate those at most risk of losing their life on the streets.  This Vulnerability Index (VI) helps to identify those who are in the most urgent need of housing and medical services. 

The information that is collected locally is compiled with other national PIT counts and is reported to Congress.
