Overview

Homeless Point-in-Time Counts is a configuration of Survey123 for ArcGIS and Operations Dashboard for ArcGIS that can be used by health and human service agencies and their network of volunteers to conduct sheltered and unsheltered homeless surveys.

The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) requires that Continuum of Care (CoC) communities conduct an annual count of homeless persons who are sheltered in transitional housing, emergency shelter, and Safe Havens. Continuums of Care also must conduct a count of unsheltered homeless persons every other year (odd numbered years). Homeless Point-in-Time Counts leverages the HUD model surveys and can be used to conduct sheltered and unsheltered surveys. These model surveys reflect best practices and input from leading survey and homeless methodology experts.
