Point In Time Count

Every year, Home for Good, along with many other volunteers and Partner Agencies, conducts a survey to assess the number of people in our community who are experiencing homelessness. This count helps to understand who in our community needs help.

Home for Good and the Continuum of Care use this information to continue the work to end homelessness in the Chattahoochee Valley.

With a 4 time increase in positive COVID 19 cases in our geographical area and in the interest of protecting public health, the Point In Time Count will now take place in February 2022.

The Point In Time Count for 2021 took place on February 16 and February 17. The shelter count was conducted on February 16 and the unsheltered count on February 17.

Despite COVID-19 and the incredible difficulties it placed on our community, especially for those most vulnerable, Home for Good increased outreach and, together with our partners, reduced the number of people experiencing homelessness.
