Point In Time Count 2018

Point-in-Time (PIT) Count is an annual effort led by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to estimate the number of Americans, including Veterans, without safe, stable housing.

Volunteers Needed!

The Continuum of Care is looking for committed and caring individuals to assist them in their yearly Point and Time Count!  The 2018 Point in Time Count will take place January 23-24, 2018.

In West Tennessee the Continuum of Care is called the West Tennessee Housing Resource Network (WTHRN). The WTHRN covers 23 counties including: Fayette, Tipton, Lauderdale, Dyer, Lake, Obion, Crockett, Haywood, Gibson, Hardeman, Madison, Weakley, Carroll, Henderson, McNairy, Hardin, Chester, Decatur, Benton, Henry, Stewart, Houston, and Humphreys. In 2017, the WTHRN served over 1200 Veterans, Families, and Diabled persons with housing services.

What is Point and Time Count?

Point in Time Count (PIT) is a count of sheltered and unsheltered homeless persons on a single night in January nationwide. Each count is planned, coordinated, and carried out locally. The information and data that is collected in the PIT is used to help everyone better understand the number and characteristics of persons who are homeless in our community.
