Rockford Scanner™: Annual Count to Address Homelessness


 





 


On January 24, 2022, beginning at 3 p.m. and continuing until 3 p.m. the following day, the City of Rockford Health & Human Services staff, in partnership with the Northern Illinois Homeless Coalition, Park District Police, Rockford Police Department, and Rockford Fire Department, will participate in the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) Annual Point in Time (PIT) Count of the Homeless. The PIT will cover both sheltered and unsheltered homeless within Boone, Winnebago, and DeKalb Counties. Volunteers will visit drop in centers, emergency rooms, parks, abandoned buildings and other locations where homeless citizens frequent to complete a survey and collect important data to determine the estimated number of people currently experiencing literal homelessness. Along with collecting data, agency volunteers will also work to engage the homeless and begin the process of working with them toward permanent housing options.

 

The Point in Time Count is required by HUD and must be completed within the last 10 days of January across the country. The information from the count is used to inform local and national policy through the Annual Homeless Assessment Report. Precautions will be taken this year to ensure safety of volunteers and homeless persons in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
