The 2015 Point-in-Time Homeless Count (PITC) is a one-day street-based and service-based count and subpopulation survey of sheltered and unsheltered individuals to identify how many people in San Bernardino County are homeless and their subpopulation characteristics on a given day.
The San Bernardino County 2015 Point-in-Time Homeless Count and Subpopulation Survey will be conducted on Thursday, January 22, 2015. Community planning and organizing activities have already begun.
The new methodology for the 2015 Point In Time Count of homeless individuals and families in the County of San Bernardino requires the involvement of key community persons and volunteers from each city and all unincorporated areas to help organize and implement the homeless count in their communities. Key persons and volunteers include representatives of local government, social service providers, law enforcement, municipal agencies, educational institutions, faith-based organizations, local businesses, civic groups, neighborhood associations, nonprofit agencies and current and formerly homeless individuals.
