The Homeless Count

During my time as an AmeriCorps member, one of my responsibilities was coordinating Point-in-Time, an annual mini-census of people in our community impacted by homelessness. When I first learned about Point-in-Time, or PIT, I thought—why do we count people who are homeless? At the time, I was unfamiliar with the complexities of homelessness, but when I experienced PIT firsthand, it became clear to me why this event is so very, very important to our community.
