The Point-in-Time Count (PIT) is when our community comes together to survey each person experiencing sheltered or unsheltered homelessness on one night. It is also when we capture temporary and permanent housing capacity and inventory across the housing continuum. The Point-in-Time Count and Housing Inventory Count are required activities for the Continuum of Care (CoC) to receive federal homelessness funding assistance from the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD). Charlotte-Mecklenburg also goes above and beyond to collect additional information that can inform local decision-making.
The date for the 2023 Point-In-Time Count is Wednesday, January 25, 2023. Volunteers will conduct surveys with persons experiencing unsheltered homelessness across Mecklenburg County throughout the day on Thursday, January 26th.
If you are interested in volunteering, please sign up here.
Donations are needed to deliver to those that complete the survey. Please purchase donations through this Amazon Wish List to be used specifically for the PIT.
