Upcoming Point-In-Time Count Training Events

Four dates have been scheduled for individuals to become trained and ready for this year’s Point-In-Time (PIT) Count.

The next PIT count of Vermont’s homeless population is taking place later this month on January 29-30, 2014. The PIT Count allows local communities and state policy makers to understand current problems of homelessness, target limited funding to appropriate housing and services, and track progress.  It also serves to highlight the need to ensure all Vermonters have safe, adequate, physically accessible, and affordable housing.

There are four dates to choose from to become ready for the count.  Webinars will take place on the 10th, 14th, and 24th.  An in-person training will occur after the next VCEH meeting taking place in Randolph on the 21st.  The training will allow folks to learn about the changes in this year’s PIT form and to become better prepared for implementing a successful and accurate count.

Please respond to this Doodle poll to pick which option works best for you, and help us be better prepared for knowing the numbers in each training session.

Email reminders will be sent prior to each training event and will include phone and log-in information for the webinars.
