Why we count:
The annual Point-In-Time Homeless Count is a requirement of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for the Honolulu Continuum of Care (CoC) . The Count is a vital part of the funding process which provides permanent housing (Permanent Supportive Housing and Rapid Re-housing), Transitional Housing, supportive services, and planning funds to our community to assist homeless persons with greater self-determination.
How we count:
The Honolulu CoC will follow a similar methodology as was used in 2016. The night of the Count will be Monday, January 23, 2017. On this night, shelter data will be pulled from the Homeless Management Information System (HMIS), as well as sent in manually from organizations who do not participate in HMIS (such as Domestic Violence shelters). The data gathered on the night of January 22 will be used as the sheltered homeless count. The unsheltered count will take place over a five day period between January 23 and January 27. The unsheltered portion will consist of specialized outreach teams and trained volunteers that will conduct brief, conversational surveys with individuals who slept unsheltered on the night of January 23.
