Everybody Counts

The One Day “Point-In-Time” Count is a federally mandated annual exercise (for cities receiving federal monies to fight homelessness) to count the number of homeless individuals and families in a given area. The theme for this year’s PIT count is “Everybody Counts.” This year (2018) Spokane is radically re-inventing its approach to the count by going high-tech and using a smart phone app rather than awkward paper forms.  The goal is a more accurate count and less paperwork.
