We want to know if your community counted homeless youth* in the annual point-in-time count this year.

Take our survey and let us know!

Every year, communities across the nation conduct point-in-time counts of people experiencing homelessness. The Department of Housing and Urban Development requires a count every other year as part of a community’s application for federal funds; many communities, however, conduct one annually of their own accord.

Capitalizing on the yearly ritual, the Alliance launched a youth count campaign, encouraging communities to include youth in their 2011 counts. We put out tools to help communities figure out how to conduct youth and the importance of including this oft-overlooked community.

So we want to know how you did! Did you count youth? How so? And how many?

Take our 5 minute, 5 question survey to let us know and if you have any questions (per usual), don’t hesitate to contact us.

* Youth are those 12-24 years of age.

    In Denmark, the homeless count every two years, there are unfortunately more and more homeless. Especially, it is quite young people who come to our reception center. SFI (Social Research Institute) sends questionnaires around the country.
