Files: Conducting Better Point-in-Time Counts of Homeless Persons by Erin Wilson (PPT | 1.55 MB | 17 pages)

Getting accurate counts of homeless people is a difficult but important process. The value of the counts goes beyond fulfilling a HUD requirement. Communities can use homeless counts to increase public awareness, attract resources that lead to the eradication of the problem, and help program administrators and policymakers to understand the needs of people who experience homelessness. This workshop highlighted effective count strategies for different types of communities.
