Thank you for your help

During the last two weeks in January each year, communities nationwide conduct a point-in-time (PIT) count of persons experiencing homelessness. Collier County conducted the PIT Thursday, January 23.

The community wide effort, led by the Hunger and Homeless Coalition, is possible through the collaboration of: partner agencies that provide social services, mental health services, veterans’ services, and homeless assistance; local government and the public school district; business and civic organizations and members of the faith community; and many compassionate neighbors who share our goal of preventing and ending homelessness.

In the coming weeks the data gathered will be compiled and analyzed. The results will be conveyed to the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and the Florida Department of Children and Families Office on Homelessness, and posted to our website.

Thank you to those who helped conduct the PIT and for all you do throughout the year for those who are homeless or who are at risk of homelessness.
