Point In Time Count


Understanding what regional data says about individuals and families experiencing homelessness is critical in building an effective community-wide response. For this reason, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) requires communities to conduct periodic counts of people experiencing homelessness. This data is compiled both locally and nationally to inform programs, planning, and funding. Homeward has coordinated Greater Richmond's Point-in-Time (PIT) count since 1999, and since 2007, has conducted both a summer and a winter count to better understand the changing nature of homelessness over time.

PIT data is published through snapshots, and is used to track trends across various subpopulations of homeless (veterans, families, chronic, etc)

2020 Winter PIT Count

ON January 22-23, Homeward led our region’s 21st winter point-in-time count and survey. This is a statewide survey event and hundreds of communities across the country also conducted their own point-in-time counts.  Homeward has released preliminary data. Final data will be released in the coming weeks

Thank you to every volunteer and agency that partnered with us in the 2020 Winter Point-in-Time count. With your help we continue to gather the data that builds solutions to homelessness in our community. 

We want to extend a special thanks to the staff and congregants of FCentenary United Methodist Church for allowing us to hold a service fair in their auditorium during the count. We also want to give a special thanks to the police departments of Richmond, Henrico County, and Chesterfield County for their continued assistance and guidance in our single day counts.
