(Riverside, CA) The 2019 Point-In-Time (PIT) Homeless Count and Survey is nearly here. 

 

The 2019 survey is a one-day street-based and shelter-based effort to identify how many people in the county are homeless on a given day. 

 

The Department of Housing and Urban Development requires Continuum of Care communities that receive HUD funding, including Riverside County, to perform a one-day, point-in-time count. 

 

Results of the 2019 Homeless Count and Survey provide critical updates on national and local progress toward ending homelessness. 

Time: 5:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. in locations throughout Riverside County 

Date: January 29, 2019 

The 2019 count will use ESRI Survey 123 as the primary data collection tool, replacing the paper-based forms. The mobile applications were tested during the 2018 count and the tool was user-friendly. Community volunteers will be asked to attend a training to learn how to use Survey 123, what to do if a person is uncooperative, and learn other safety and logistical information. Volunteer training will be held prior to the count.
