The annual Homeless Point-In-Time Count in Hillsborough County will take place on Thursday, February 28, 2019. Hyde Park United Methodist serves as the downtown deployment site for the count.
The Count is coordinated by the Tampa/Hillsborough County Continuum of Care (CoC), led by the Tampa Hillsborough Homeless Initiative in conjunction with community partners. The data, collected through a short survey and observation during the Homeless Count, provides a Point-In-Time (PIT) ‘snapshot’ as to what the homeless population in our community looks like during a single, 24-hour period. The purpose of the count is to help community planners better understand, through demographic information, who is homeless, why, and for how long.
