Point In Time Count 2021 - PRELIMINARY DATA
Volunteers surveyed a total of 254 individuals experiencing homelessness in shelters, transitional housing, and unsheltered in Muscogee and Russell County. The survey collected data about each individual’s current housing situation, family, and health.
This last year was unique due to the record freezing temperatures and Coronavirus. The 254 total is up 2% from last year, many of which are most likely due to the pandemic. Two warming shelters were open, leaving only 18 unsheltered.
Thank you to our Chair for this year’s Point In Time Count Holli Browder, Director of the Columbus Parks. And we sincerely thank the many volunteers without whom we could not do the work we do.
