2016 Point-In-Time Count

Thank you to all who participated in this year's Point-In-Time Count for Housing and Urban Development.  Your partnership in ensuring people dealing with homelessness is greatly appreciated. 

The information is collected and analyzed by the State of Minnesota. Results of this year's count can be expected by May 2016

If you would like to participate in next year's count, you can email [email protected] with your name and email. 

Trainings for the 2016 Point-In-Time (PIT) Count will be held on:
Wednesday, January 20th at 9am 
Tuesday, January 26th at 1pm

Both trainings will be conducted in Room 552 at the Anoka County Government Center and will last about an hour.  Volunteers only need to attend one training.  If you are unable to attend either training, an online option is available. 

If this is your first time volunteering for the PIT count, you are strongly encouraged to attend an in-person training. 

Email Michele Reid at [email protected] with the date of the training you plan to attend.
