Two scheduled Community Advisory Meetings for the 2022 Point-In-Time Count will be hosted by the Philadelphia Office of Homeless Services and in partnership with Valley Youth House on November 11th at 5pm (see below to register). Another meeting will be scheduled for November 18th.
What is the PIT Count?
The Point-in-Time (PIT) count is a count of sheltered and unsheltered people experiencing homelessness on a single night in January. Required by HUD at the federal level, Philadelphia's Continuum of Care (CoCs) conducts an annual count of people experiencing homelessness on a single night. The purpose of the count is to estimate the size of the population in need of housing and supportive services and to utilize the data to work towards ending homelessness in our city. In Philly, the Office of Homeless Services partners with Valley Youth House, guides with lived experience, and community volunteers to make the count happen.
What are the Community Advisory Meetings?
This is an opportunity for anyone to join whether you've been involved in years past or you would just like to learn more. We hope to gain community and participant feedback, insight, ideas, and suggestions for the count this year. Your opinion and perspective is very valuable and we look forward to hearing from you!
