The Indiana Balance of State Continuum of Care (IndianaBOS) is designed to promote community-wide commitment to the goal of ending homelessness, provide funding, promote access to mainstream resources, and provide the framework for optimizing self-sufficiency among individuals and families experiencing homelessness.
One resource used to combat homelessness is the Point-in-Time (PIT) Count. The PIT Count is a count of sheltered and unsheltered homeless persons on a single night in January. The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) requires each Continuum of Care to conduct a census of homeless persons who are sheltered in emergency shelter, transitional housing, and safe havens on a single night. Join us on October 18th as Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority's (IHCDA) Director of Community Services explains recent PIT Counts data and findings. Explore the issue of homelessness in Indiana and how to use the PIT Count data to inform policymakers and service providers better.
