Funding Year 2018 Point in Time Count

Overview

Every year in January, the LA BOSCOC conducts a Point in Time (PIT) Count. Part census and part outreach event, the PIT Count is both an opportunity to connect outreach workers with people experiencing literal homelessness and to count how many people are experiencing homelessness on a single night in the LA BOSCOC.

The LA BOSCOC conducted its FY 2018 PIT Count throughout the week of January 21, 2019.

The PIT Count covers all five of the LA BOSCOC’s Regions to the extent possible given the local population, geography, and CoC membership.

Beginning in January 2018, the LA BOSCOC has published a data visualization of its PIT Count outcomes. The January 2019 version of the data visualization (which includes comparable data back to January 2018) can be found below.

The PIT Count is intended to be the beginning of conversations about homelessness, not the final word. It is limited by time (it represents only one night in January), by outreach capacity, and by the willingness and capacity of each person experiencing homelessness to accurately and completely respond to the PIT Count outreach workers.
