About the Point in Time Count
Local Continuum of Care alliances must plan and conduct, at least biennially, a Point in Time count of homeless persons within the geographic area. Point in Time counts are carried out on one night in the last 10 calendar days of January or at such other time as required by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The 2018 Housing Inventory Count and Point in Time count data provide critical updates on national and local progress towards preventing and ending homelessness.
The 2018 St. Johns County Point in Time Count is being conducted in coordination with local agency homeless services providers and St. Johns County Care Connect.
