The core purpose of our annual Point in Time (PIT) Count is to collect data on the needs of people experiencing homelessness in our community. The count also provides an excellent opportunity to increase awareness of homelessness and to spark action. A successful and accurate PIT Count is an essential component to informing our system response to the need in our community and to ultimately making homelessness rare, brief and one-time.

For questions about the PIT count, please contact

  • Participate in the Count

    All Home is now seeking volunteers for Count Us In 2019, our annual Point in Time (PIT) Count of people experiencing homelessness. The Count will be conducted in the early hours of the morning of January 25, 2019 from 2am-6am.

    Volunteers will be asked to work in teams of 2-4 to conduct a visual count of individuals experiencing homelessness across King County. Teams are comprised of community volunteers and expert guides (individuals currently/previously experiencing homelessness), who will walk/drive all over their assigned routes. Volunteers are expected to have a cell phone, and to walk approximately 2-3 miles if necessary. Volunteers with cars will be asked to help transport their team members on the day of the count.
