24 HOUR POINT IN TIME (PIT) COUNT OF HOMELESS INDIVIDUALS AND FAMILIES
Wednesday JANUARY 29, 2020
- The US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) requests that Continua of Care (CoC) throughout the nation count those who are homeless each year during the last 10 days of January. Michigan has selected January 29, 2020 as the date of our count. The numbers gathered are reported to HUD and used at the national level to develop programs and track changes in the numbers of homeless and to assess financial support to those in need.

We need your help!
The Northwest Michigan Coalition to End Homelessness is a collaboration of local non-profit agencies, organizations, and individuals who work to house people experiencing homelessness. Every year communities all around the United States take a day during the last week of January to concentrate efforts on identifying as many people as possible who are living on the streets, in the woods, and in places not meant for human habitation. This effort is called the Point in Time Count or PIT.
The PIT count is important to our community for several reasons:
