About The Point-in-Time (PIT) count
The Point-in-Time (PIT) count is a collaborative effort led by Opening Doors Northwest Florida to conduct a two-county census of people experiencing homelessness. An accurate PIT count helps bring in resources to both Escambia and Santa Rosa County to address homelessness and housing.
Volunteers are needed during the days of January 24th, 25th and 26th, 2023 to help with the Point in Time Count and the You-Count Homeless Connect event.
Point in Time count survey teams will be going out to various locations across the two counties. The registration form allows you to select a preferred location.
