Point-in-Time (PIT) Count
2024 PIT Count Date: TBD
The Point-in-Time (PIT) Count is an annual count on one night in January of those experiencing homelessness. We are recruiting volunteers for Jefferson County's 2023 Point-in-Time (PIT) Count. Volunteers will conduct interviews with individuals and families experiencing homelessness who are accessing services at service centers and/or in outdoor locations. All volunteers must register below and will be expected to complete a brief recorded online training in advance of the count.
Registration for 2024 PIT Count will open in late 2023
The PIT Count generates an annual snapshot of homelessness on a single night, and raises public awareness, promotes collaboration across seven counties, provides needed data, helps to apply for funding, and reminds the community that everyone counts!
WHEN & WHERE
The PIT Count occurs on one 24 hour period of time in late January. Volunteers will be deployed throughout Jeffco based on the geographic preference and shift(s) selected on the registration form.
The PIT Count will use a full census count (brief interviews) using an app-based survey designed for easy access on your smart phone. Volunteers may choose to participate in self-identified groups of 2-3 people OR we’ll pair you with another person. You’ll select your preference on the registration form. Must be 18 to participate!
