Do you serve the homeless?
The 2024 Point-in-Time Count (PIT) and Survey is an annual event providing a snapshot of homelessness in Escambia and Santa Rosa counties. The data collected during this event helps secure funding for vital resources, informs policy at federal and local levels, and guides how our community allocates resources.
Service providers and volunteers are planning to canvass “known locations” such as; shelters, food pantries, soup kitchens, as well as camps across Escambia and Santa Rosa counties over several days during the week of Jan. 22-28, 2024.
We are asking your organization to join the 2024 Point-In-Time Count. If you accept this invitation, we will deploy trained volunteers to survey your customers, we assign a site leader to each location. Or you may have your own volunteers/staff members trained to complete the surveys.
Surveys take an average of 5 minutes per person.
Opening Doors wants to cast a wide net and is asking for those who work with homeless individuals, to be sure we don’t miss anyone. Counts can significantly increase a community’s ability to take action towards ending homelessness.
