2018 Annual Count Results

In the early hours of January 27, 2018, over 500 volunteers counted the number of children, families, and adults experiencing unsheltered homelessness throughout Austin/Travis County. Volunteers counted people in cars, tents, parks, under bridges, and on the streets.

On the same day, people who were sleeping in shelters and Transitional Housing programs were counted using Austin/Travis County’s Homeless Management Information System (HMIS).  Together, the persons counted unsheltered and sheltered totaled 2,147, reflecting a 5% increase from the previous year’s total count.
