2024 Point-In-Time (PIT) Count
Night of Wednesday, January 24, 2024 - Morning of Thursday, January 25, 2024
On a single night each year the Delaware Continuum of Care conducts a Point in Time (PIT) count of people experiencing homelessness, with the assistance of community volunteers and partners. On the same night, a census of available homeless-dedicated temporary and permanent housing resources is undertaken, called the Housing Inventory Count (HIC). Together, these data points provide information about the need facing Delaware’s homeless response system and the supply of available shelter and housing options.
A successful PIT count relies heavily on the community-wide effort of our dedicated partners and volunteers.
We need boots on the ground in New Castle, Kent, and Sussex counties to assist in surveying individuals outdoors and as they arrive for shelter/services.
