What is the PIT Count and Why Is It Important?

The Point-in-Time (PIT) Count is a HUD-mandated assessment that provides a snapshot of how many people are experiencing sheltered and unsheltered homelessness in a community on a given night in January.

The PIT Count is important because results from the count are used to inform policy and provide required data that helps Baltimore City access needed Federal and State homeless services resources. Also, it helps the City identify and connect individuals, families, and youth experiencing homelessness to much needed housing and support services.

Why Do We Need Volunteers?

This is a community effort that relies on the support of various stakeholders, City agencies and community members.

Volunteers are needed to canvass Baltimore City and administer surveys to individuals experiencing homelessness on January 22, 2021, 4pm-11pm. Such surveys support better intervention strategies, and when done properly, allow communities like ours to assess their progress in reducing homelessness. All volunteers must be at least 18 years of age and will be required to participate in a mandatory training session before the night of the count. More information about training sessions will be provided.

What Happens During the Count?

Small groups of volunteers, led by an experienced homeless service provider, will canvass Baltimore City streets and outdoor locations to survey individuals experiencing homelessness.

Volunteers may register to canvass a specific quadrant of the City - Northeast, Southeast, Northwest, Southwest - or register as an At-Large Volunteer if they are open to canvassing any area of the City.
