2014 Point-in-Time Count is Coming

Save the Date January 29th

2014 Point-in-Time Count is ComingPlease “Save the Date” for the 2014 Point-In-Time Count, which will take place on Wednesday, January 29.

Monarch Housing Associates’ Ending Homelessness Team will be coordinating this year’s count and please stay tuned for more information about upcoming trainings and other important details for this year’s count.

The Count is New Jersey’s opportunity to get an accurate snapshot of the homeless population, including both the sheltered and un-sheltered, in each of the state’s twenty-one counties.

This data is critical in applying for federal funding and can also make the case for additional funding from lawmakers and the private sector. The information gathered can help local communities determine what housing and services are needed to most effectively meet the needs of its homeless population and working with the media, it is a wonderful opportunity to raise awareness around the issue of homelessness.
