Each year, the Treasure Coast Services Council conducts the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) mandatory, one-day, Point in Time (PIT) count. This count is conducted in all three of our served counties during one of the last ten days of January. Last years’ count was on January 26, 2023 and showed 925 literally homeless individuals. The count is always held on a date within the last 10 days of January.
The Annual PIT count is a key step in understanding the state of homelessness on the Treasure Coast. It represents a snapshot of both sheltered and unsheltered literally homeless individuals, youths, and families.
Volunteers and staff wear identifying t-shirts for awareness and safety. Those interviewed who are experiencing homelessness will receive Care-Packs which will include essentials and more information on resources and agencies that can help. Packs will include:
- List of resources
- Hygiene kit
- Food items
- Sunscreen and Bug spray
- Branded BackPack
- Donate $100 and help fill 5 packs with necessities.
- Donate goods and items for the Care-Packs
- Volunteer time to pack the Care-Packs
- Volunteer to be a part of the PIT Canvassing Team
