The Point-In-Time (PIT) Homeless Count is a count and survey of Riverside County’s sheltered and unsheltered homeless population. Riverside County’s Department of Public Social Services (DPSS), in partnership with Riverside County’s Continuum of Care, is required to conduct this biannual count in late January. The Continuum of Care (CoC) is a network of private- and public-sector homeless service providers, designed to promote community-wide planning and the strategic use of resources to address homelessness.
The Point-in-Time Homeless Count and Subpopulation Survey is a one-day street-based and service-based count and subpopulation survey of sheltered and unsheltered individuals to identify how many people in Riverside County are homeless and their subpopulation characteristics on a given day.
