Point in Time Count
2022 Homeless Point-In-Time Count Report
Every two years, the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) requires communities to conduct a Point-in-Time (PIT) Count of individuals, youth, and families experiencing homelessness and provide specific data about their demographics and characteristics. On Wednesday, February 23rd, 2022 Alameda County conducted this count, which includes those who are forced to sleep outdoors, in vehicles, tents or makeshift structures as well as a count of people residing in shelters, transitional housing and safe parking programs. In the weeks following the count, a random, sample survey is also conducted with those experiencing sheltered and unsheltered homelessness to learn more about the demographics, experiences, and needs.
