Sign Up to Volunteer for the 2024 PIT Count
We will be hosting monthly meetings preceding the 2024 PIT Count. The Count is scheduled for the morning of January 25, 2024. These meetings are highly recommended if you are planning to volunteer for the PIT Count.
Every two years, during the last 10 days of January, communities across the country conduct comprehensive counts of the local homeless populations in order to measure the prevalence of homelessness in each local Continuum of Care.*
* Due to COVID-19, a PIT count was not taken in 2021
Point-in-Time Counts are a measure of the number of homeless people on a specific day. The PIT is considered a "snapshot" of the homeless population. Below are the results for Santa Cruz County.
