PIT Count

Each year, Philadelphia performs a Point-in-Time (PIT) Count in collaboration with the Youth Count, in January of all homeless individuals living on the streets, unsheltered, or in temporary shelter housing. The PIT and Youth Count count engages concerned citizens and Philadelphia agencies working to eradicate homelessness to help estimate the size of the population in need of housing and critical life supports. 

Why We Count:

The 2018 Point in Time Count—the annual count conducted to estimate the number of unsheltered and sheltered homeless individuals during a specific moment in time—will be held on January 24, 2018. The PIT Count engages Philadelphia agencies working to eradicate homelessness and concerned citizens; teams lead by experienced Outreach workers and made up of volunteers will walk the City of Philadelphia to collect the total number and characteristics of all unsheltered people.
