Point-In-Time Count

2019 Point-In-Time Count Volunteers Needed
The Point-In-Time Count is an annual census of people experiencing literal homelessness. It helps our community identify and understand the extent and nature of homelessness. Data from the Count allows us to apply for funding and advocate for increased resources in our community.
The Denton County Homeless Coalition needs volunteers to conduct surveys and make Denton County's homeless population count!
#DenCoCounts! You can find more information on the Denton County Homeless Coalition's website and Facebook.


(Please note: volunteers must be 18+ to participate)







The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) requires that all communities applying to use HUD Continuum of Care (CoC) funding to serve the homeless should count the unsheltered and sheltered homeless on one night that falls within the last 10 days of January. This annual count is referred to as the “Point-in-Time Count,” and is important to all communities, providing a tally of who is homeless on a given night and producing a snapshot of who experiences homeless throughout the year. Interviews of individuals were conducted by volunteers a various sites and at social service agencies in the community.
