NJCounts Our Homeless Neighbors on January 25, 2017
In the state of New Jersey the annual Point in Time count of individuals and families experiencing homelessness or at risk of becoming homeless is called NJCounts.
The annual count takes place during the last 10 days of January in accordance with requirements from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). This year’s count will be on January 25, 2017.
While HUD mandates an annual count of sheltered homeless population and a biennial count of un-sheltered homeless populations, New Jersey employs an annual count to not only obtain consistent data about the number of individuals and families experiencing homelessness, but also to understand the causes of homelessness and the service needs of those experiencing homelessness.
On December 22, 2016, Monarch Housing held an NJ Counts 2017 PIT Training Webinar.
