Point in Time count of homeless takes place today

Nationwide tally is of anyone living in a tent, car, school bus, sidewalk

The 2020 Point In Time count is today.

The Point in Time (PIT) count is a nationwide tally held Jan. 23 of anyone living in a tent, car, school bus, sidewalk or any other place not meant for habitation.

People at risk of homelessness such as those couch surfing or doubled up and living with others also are counted.

Olympic Community Action Programs (OlyCAP) is organizing the count and volunteers for Jefferson County and Serenity House of Clallam County are overseeing Clallam’s count.

The number of people counted each year in Jefferson County has varied from a high of 355 individuals and families surveyed in 2015 to a low of 97 people counted as homeless in 2014.

The number of individuals counted in Clallam County in 2019 was 233 for both sheltered and unsheltered people.
