We All Count!

We all count! Our staff members recently participated in the Point in Time Count, an annual survey that counts how many people experience homelessness on a single night, in a given community. The count allows staff and volunteers to survey youth who are experiencing homelessness and learn about their specific needs and housing status. This count is one factor for deciding the amount of federal funding the county receives, and helps inform civic leaders of steps needed to address homelessness and boost efforts to get more resources and funding from the federal government.

San Diego County has the seventh-largest population in the country with almost 8,000 people experiencing homelessness. About 12 percent of those are unsheltered youth.
