Thank you Alabama volunteers
Homeless Census conducted in January
The Point-in-Time count is a count of sheltered and unsheltered homeless persons on a single night in January. HUD requires that Continuums of Care conduct an annual count of homeless persons who are sheltered in emergency shelter, transitional housing, and Safe Havens on a single night. Continuums of Care also must conduct a count of unsheltered homeless persons every other year (odd numbered years). Each count is planned, coordinated, and carried out locally.
The Alabama Point-in-Time count took place January 26 and 27. Thanks to each and every one of you who bundled-up and headed-out to help with the 2016 point-in-time count of your community’s homeless. We very much appreciate your time and energy. The count, of course, is just a snapshot in time, but the data you help collect is crucial helping communities in general and homeless providers in particular to better understand and serve those who have the misfortune of being without a place to call home. Again, thank you.
