Contra Costa will conduct its annual Point-in-Time (PIT) count, documenting homeless residents throughout the county on January 25.

Data from the PIT Count helps government, service providers and community advocates develop effective responses to the needs of local people. The information is also a required part of the county’s requests for federal and state funding for homeless services.

During the 2020 count, the last year for which we have reliable data, there were about 2,277 homeless people in Contra Costa County.

Data gathered during this year’s count will not be available for several months.

Who does the counting? Could it be homeless advocate groups that may inflate the number to get more funding?

I guarantee the numbers will be inflated if the advocate groups are doing the counting.

But what counts as homeless or unhoused? The person who is willingly sleeping in the camper van/RV, are they counted or excluded? How bout the ones who want to camp out in the city parks, or your behind your business cause they do not want to work?

It would be ok if the official estimate was twice the actual amount, then we could all demand that at least 50% of that estimated homeless population be relocated to Delaware.

Encourage each and everyone of them to head to San Francisco.

BART can chip in by providing one-way tickets to SF, the liberals’ paradise.

What good does counting do? Build a tent city and put them in it. Then count them.

Put up some tents and outhouses at a remote spot of the CNWS .
Park a water tank out there too.
It can serve as a Bidenville Camp until a more practical solution is found or some way to motivate them to work and have some self respect is discovered.
Easier to count them that way too.
