On January 2011, the Humboldt Homeless and Housing Coalition (HHHC) conducted a Point-In-Time (PIT) Count of the county’s homeless population. The purpose of the Point-In-Time Count is to obtain an unduplicated count and some basic information about homeless people. This information is used to assess the effectiveness of the services the community provides and identify service gaps for future planning. Previous counts were conducted in 2005 and 2009.
On Friday July 8, 2011 KMUD News received two documents reporting information from the study.
The documents can be viewed and downloaded using the links below:
