Project Homeless Connect a success!
Project Homeless Connect was held January 30, 2014 at St. Joseph Catholic Church. A total of 342 men, women and children attended. Provided services included haircuts, housing leads, job assistance, counseling, foot washing, clothing, dental care, and access to social service programs.
The 2014 Point In Time Count count was also held January 30, 2014. The Point in Time Count is conducted by the Council for the Homeless. The count is a county-wide “one-day homeless count” during the same week once each year. The count is known as the annual Point in Time (PIT) count. Many community partners and volunteers help with the PIT. The data from the the 2014 event will be available soon.
PIT provides a statistical snapshot of homelessness in our community and helps us understand trends and needs. It is required by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and by Washington state law.
