In January, communities across the nation counted the number of people experiencing homelessness on a particular night. Called point-in-time counts, these efforts are required by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development in communities that have continuum of care grants to provide comprehensive services to the homeless.
In an effort to share the results of the local point-in-time counts, the National Alliance to End Homelessness recently released the “2013 Homeless Counts Map.” The interactive tool shows communities that have made their results public, either in formal online reports or in local media coverage.
Red pins represent an increased number of homeless people, while green pins show a decline. Clicking a pin brings up the total count for that community and links to the corresponding report or news article.
The alliance's Homelessness Research Institute will update the map as new information is released. If you would like your community to be included, please email a completed report or relevant news story to firstname.lastname@example.org.
