Durham 2017 PIT Count Report

On February 15th-17th, 2017 Community Development Council Durham (CDCD) and Durham Mental Health Services (DMHS), in collaboration with numerous partners, conducted Durham’s first Point-in-Time (PiT) Count. With the assistance of 150 volunteers, those who were experiencing sheltered or unsheltered homelessness, or were provisionally accommodated in a public institution or transitional shelter, were surveyed, enumerated or tallied. The results of the PiT Count provide a snapshot of the minimum number of people experiencing homelessness in Durham Region and provides community members and decision makers with additional data to help inform funding and policy decisions. In addition, the results of the PiT Count establish a benchmark against which progress can be measured when future PiT Counts are conducted.
