Point-In-Time Homelessness Count


Point-in-Time Homelessness Count

The Point-in-Time (PIT) Homelessness Count is an annual street and shelter count to determine the number of people experiencing homelessness in Maricopa County during a given point in time. This count is part of a national effort to identify the extent of homelessness throughout the country. The count includes a brief survey to identify the needs of those experiencing homelessness in the community. MAG coordinates the PIT Count each year for the Maricopa Regional Continuum of Care (CoC). MAG serves as the hub of collaboration between the Continuum of Care and local communities. The 2023 Point in Time occurred on January 23, 2023. The full report showed an increase of 7% in people experiencing homelessness.

Make it Count

To accomplish community goals and make a difference in the lives of people experiencing homelessness, we need to know who they are, where they are, and understand the factors that led to their homelessness.

Every January, volunteers and outreach teams from local communities collaborate to survey and count the number of people experiencing homelessness in their respective locations. With the information provided by the PIT Count, the Maricopa Regional Continuum of Care and local communities can determine how best to address homelessness. The data gathered in the count can also be used to measure progress and advocate for additional resources. During the count and throughout the year, resources are available for those experiencing homelessness in our Need Help section.
