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.
