2017 Chicago Point-in-Time (PIT) Count - Posted 12/20/2016

Chicago’s PIT Count is scheduled to occur on Thursday, January 26, 2017 from 8pm to 2am. In order for Chicago to receive federal funding, Chicago must collect data on the number of persons experiencing homelessness on one given night. This data provides a snapshot of Chicago’s homeless population which includes those in a homeless program and those on the street. The data gathered serves not only to raise public awareness about homelessness but also is used for services & resources planning.

For 2017, Chicago will be conducting a PIT street count and volunteers will be dispatched to canvass the City of Chicago. If you are interested in volunteering, please sign up by clicking here. If this is your first time volunteering, feel free to review the PIT Volunteer FAQs. We also recommend you view the 2017 Point-in-Time Volunteer Video below.
