Oahu’s annual Point In Time Count (PITC), conducted by Partners In Care, usually occurs in the end of January, but due to COVID surges, has been rescheduled to take place on Thursday, March 10th from 6am to 11am. The Point in Time Count is a federally mandated census count from the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), to be completed by each Continuum of Care across the United States.
The Point in Time Count provides a snapshot of all those experiencing homelessness in our shelters, streets, beaches, tents, cars, or other places not meant for human habitation. This count is vital for establishing federal funding from HUD, State, local and private funding to help end homelessness.
Volunteers are a crucial part of the Point in Time Count. They help outreach workers conduct surveys across the island for a comprehensive and accurate count, and also help in collecting and distributing hygiene kits.
