Count Us In

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.

    2019 Count Us In took place on January 25th, 2019. Thank you to all the guides, volunteers, site leads and coordinators, donors, and staff that participated in any aspect of the count efforts over the last several months of planning and implementation. Nearly 1,000 community members came together across all regions of King County to ensure an accurate and respectful count.

    We are inspired by the tremendous compassion and dedication of all participants, from every sector of our community. Though we don’t have immediate results, we know that homelessness is far too common in our region. The Count is a sobering reminder that we must do more to support those who are without housing today while preventing homelessness for those at risk of losing their housing in the days and months ahead.
