Point In Time Count



On the early morning of January 26, 2017 more than 250 volunteers combed all parts of the City to survey the unsheltered homeless.  At the same time counts were being made of the sheltered homeless.


Data on the 2017 PIT Count will be available in the coming weeks. The information will help our community understand the number and characteristics of individuals experiencing homelessness on a single night. This way we can organize responses to homelessness and make decisions for the best allocation of resources to make homelessness in Philadelphia rare, brief and non-recurring. The data will be published here when it is available.
