2014 Point-in-Time count

On January 30, the NEGA Homeless and Poverty Coalition worked with several local organizations and volunteers to complete the annual Point-in-Time (PIT) count.  249 individuals were reported on in the count, 87 of whom were unsheltered and 162 of whom were sheltered.  Significantly more than 249 people experience homelessness in the community over the course of the year, but the PIT provides a snapshot of the population.

Check out the more detailed report for more information: 2014 PIT count
