The Point-In-Time (PIT) Count is conducted to identify the number of homeless individuals and families in the county. It also serves to measure the needs of the homeless as well as provide direction for future development of housing and services.
The Count is scheduled to begin at noon Jan. 29 through noon Jan. 30.  It is a vital tool for resource development and planning. The Count is also an excellent opportunity for measuring the County’s success in housing homeless populations.
The Point-In-Time Count is mandated by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to be completed at least every two years. It is also a requirement to qualify for state funds administered by the State Office on Homelessness.  Some private foundations rely on the results of this count to determine grant awards. 
As the lead entity for the Homeless Continuum of Care, the Palm Beach County Division of Human Services seeks support for this project.

If you are interested in volunteering, please call 561-355-4779.

Below is the link to register to volunteer for the 2015 Point-In-Time Count. The PIT will take place from noon on January 29,2015 - noon on January 30, 2015. You can register to volunteer for a fixed site or to participate on one of the Outreach Teams. There will be twenty outreach teams this year. The PIT Training registration dates will be announced soon. Please register as soon as possible.

Below is a link to "fixed site" locations where homeless individuals and families can go during the Point in Time Count to get counted!
