Annual Homeless Enumeration to be Held Later this Month

Every year since 2000, COG has helped coordinate and report on the enumeration of the region’s homeless population.  In 2014, the region counted 11,946 homeless people during the one-day snapshot, or “Point-in-Time” count.  This year’s count is scheduled for Wednesday, January 28, and COG and local governments are seeking volunteers. The backup date, in case of inclement weather, will be Thursday, January 29.  

COG’s Homeless Services Committee held a training for new and first-time Point-in-Time enumeration volunteer trainers on December 9, 2014 to prepare for the count. The Point-in-Time count provides a one-day snapshot of the region’s homeless population (sheltered and unsheltered) to help assess community needs and evaluate progress in eliminating homelessness.

To volunteer for the 2015 count or for more information, you may contact Belinda.Fadlelmola@hud.gov or hchapman@mwcog.org
