Just last month, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development released the results from the 2011 Point-in-Time (PIT) survey, a national estimate of the number of homeless individuals living in our shelters and, sadly, on our streets. The report showed a remarkable 12 percent drop in the number of homeless veterans and a reduction of 2.1 percent of all homeless. The PIT count is critical to measuring the effectiveness of our service to members of the community that are in the greatest need.
This year, you and I have the opportunity to participate in the 2012 PIT count to be held on a single night in January 2012. Many HUD employees are joining with other agencies, friends and neighbors to participate in the count around the country. You can too. Won’t you consider volunteering to participate in your area?
Please visit HUDHRE.info to find out how you can participate in this valiant effort.
