Point in Time (PIT) Count

The purpose of the PIT Count is to have a snap shot of how many people are experiencing homelessness on Long Island at any given time and assess the needs of people living unsheltered or in emergency shelter. This report can be used to show general changes in total homeless numbers year over year, can identify trends within who is experiencing homelessness, why people are experiencing homelessness, and for how long. Demographic data allows for further local efforts to reduce any disparities within the homeless response system.

Our next PIT Count will take place in January 2025.

The results of the 2024 PIT Count is in the process of being submitted to and reviewed by HUD before publication.
