Point In Time Count of Homelessness

Each year, the Chittenden County Homeless Alliance joins communities across Vermont, and nationwide, in conducting a Point In Time Count.  The “PIT Count” is a count and survey of all individuals and families experiencing “literal homelessness” in Vermont.  The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) considers individuals and families “literally homeless” when they live in a place not meant for human habitation (such as a tent, a vehicle, or on the streets), or in an emergency shelter, in transitional housing, or in a hotel paid for by a government or charitable organization.  Knowing how many people are homeless in Vermont helps us to provide better programs and services.

The 2021 PIT count report is forthcoming, but the preliminary numbers can be found here.
