Point in Time Count 3 Months Away

Vermont’s Annual Point in Time Count¬†
A Count & Survey of People Experiencing Homelessness
The Night of January 31, 2018

Communities across the nation annually conduct a Point in Time Count of people experiencing homelessness to better understand & plan for the needs of some of our most vulnerable community members.

During the 2017 Point in Time Count, 1,225 Vermonters were experiencing literal homelessness; 25% of them were children, 11% were staying in unsheltered locations, and 28% reported having a severe mental illness. For more on last Year’s Count, view the report.

If you’re interested in volunteering locally for the 2018 Count, contact Laurel Chen to find out who is organizing the Count in your area.
