The results of the 2015 annual Point In Time Count have been released.
The count revealed 7,298 people experiencing homelessness on the night of January 28th. This number depicts our "literally homeless" neighbors, which includes individuals and families who were unsheltered, staying in emergency shelters, and staying in Transitional Housing. One bright spot in the results was a 5.8% decrease in individuals experiencing homelessness since the count in 2014.
In addition to literally homeless neighbors, the census also revealed 4,415 individuals and 2,016 families residing in Permanent Support Housing, Rapid Rehousing, or other permanent housing for people who were homeless before entering those programs.
While we have made some progress towards ending homelessness, we still have work to do. CHGM is excited to continue working with providers and members of our community to seek solutions.
