Summit County Continuum of Care to Hold Annual Point In Time (PIT) Count in January
A collaboration of agencies working together for the homeless.
AKRON, Ohio – Jan. 28, 2020 – Every year, Summit County Continuum of Care members, in conjunction with HUD, coordinate with volunteers to count the homeless in Summit County. The Point In Time (PIT) Count takes place throughout the day on January 28, 2020.
“Summit County has a robust system of services and housing options for individuals who are homeless,” said Mar-quetta Boddie, Manager of the Summit County Continuum of Care. “The homeless people in our community are best served by the development and support of permanent housing solutions. Using the information we collect during the PIT Count, we can continue to offer those solutions.”
On January 28, volunteers will be at meal sites, the main library, and the metro station, while street outreach conducts walks through the streets, the woods, and encampments throughout the county to count each homeless individual. Volunteers will provide information on where to get help and how to connect with various resources. The information we collect during the PIT count, provides us the data we need to secure HUD funding which helps alleviate homelessness in our community.
We need donations. We need volunteers. We need you.
