Press Release 2023 PIT Count
Dec. 19, 2022, Brevard County, FL — The Point in Time Count – an annual survey of Brevard County’s homeless community – is scheduled for January 30, 2023. The Point in Time Count aims to provide a snapshot of the individuals and families experiencing homelessness in Brevard County over the course of one night. This includes people living in unsheltered locations, such as cars, parks, streets and sidewalks, as well as those living in transitional housing or emergency shelters. Volunteers paired with professional outreach workers and case managers visit these locations and others to help gather information about the size and scope of homelessness in Brevard. Point in Time Count data is used by nonprofit and government agencies to secure grant funding to provide resources to help those in need with services such as rapid rehousing, supportive services and case management, street outreach, essential needs, emergency shelters, and rental assistance.
