Homelessness Point-in-Time Counts can be used to conduct point-in-time counts of sheltered and unsheltered individuals experiencing homelessness.
The solution allows you to rapidly conduct counts of persons experiencing homelessness who are sheltered in transitional housing, emergency shelters, and safe havens. Communities that meet the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) in Continuum of Care requirements can increase homelessness service capability and funding. Using field apps and location-based information to conduct point-in-time counts helps these communities quickly summarize the extent of homelessness and streamlines requests for federal funding. The Homelessness Point-in-Time Counts solution is typically implemented by health and human services agencies that want to understand the state of homelessness and collect information necessary to redirect services, funding, and resources to those in need.
The Homelessness Point-in-Time Counts solution delivers a set of capabilities that help you capture surveys during counts, visualize the extent of homelessness and filter key metrics captured in the survey, and export this information in a report that can be delivered to HUD.
