2019 Point in Time Count

What is a Point In Time Count?

Each year, ECHO plans and leads the Point in Time Count (PIT Count). The PIT Count is an annual census of the homeless population. Numbers from this census are used to contribute to both local and national data. Over 500 Point in Time Count General Volunteers will cover all of the Travis County geographic area at a single point in time to talk with persons experiencing homelessness to conduct a survey that helps ECHO to better understand the scope of unsheltered homelessness in our community.
