2022 Point-In-Time Count

The Sacramento CoC conducts a count of unsheltered persons every other year, as mandated by HUD. The Point-in-Time (PIT) count provides valuable data on the number of people experiencing unsheltered homelessness, as well as trends in subpopulation demographics such as veteran status, chronic homelessness, and transition age youth over time. The 2022 PIT is anticipated to occur in late January to assess the prevalence of homelessness in Sacramento County during the coldest period of the calendar year. Sign up for our monthly newsletter to get PIT-related updates, including about subcommittee and volunteer participation.

 


 

PIT Count Committee

The PIT Count Committee engages with staff and consultants in the planning and implementation of the count. The 2022 committee will participate throughout the process including: research design, implementation, and reporting; volunteer recruitment, training, and coordination; and event logistics planning and implementation. The committee will provide the CoC Board with regular planning updates, post-count debrief, and recommendations for future counts.

Committee members represent their constituencies and the broader CoC community in the planning, implementation, and debriefing of the 2022 PIT Count. A work plan and timeline will be developed to guide this effort. 

Committee Co-Chairs take on the additional responsibilities of collaborating with SSF staff to prepare meeting agendas and materials and facilitating subcommittee meetings. General Subcommittee Members will:

  • Review materials prior to meetings
  • Attend meetings
  • Notify SSF staff in advance if a meeting will be missed
  • Follow up on any additional commitments the member makes over the course of the subcommittee’s work

Membership Terms
Committee members shall be appointed by the Sacramento CoC Board for two-year terms. Members must follow the code of conduct, conflict of interest and recusal requirements outlined in Part IV of the 2021 Sacramento City and County CoC Governance Charter.


 

PIT Volunteer Recruitment & Training

SSF is leading the volunteer recruitment, training, communications, and coordination for the 2022 PIT. Individuals and teams are highly encouraged to participate in this 2-night count to support street canvassing and other volunteer activities, which are currently being finalized.

We’re also working to ensure this is a safe and meaningful opportunity for our community volunteers to engage in, especially as COVID-19 mandates change and as our PIT Count teams explore Sacramento’s unincorporated areas.

If you volunteered at previous counts or know anyone interested in supporting these efforts, please consider and share about participating at the 2022 PIT Count. If you do decide to join us, please make sure to select “PIT Count” when asked about how you’d like to get involved so we can send you updates.

We hope you’ll join us!


 

Upcoming Events

We’ll be providing PIT Volunteer training information on this page and will send more updates closer to the event date. In the meantime, we’re planning to attend these community events to help promote and prepare for the PIT Count.
