Point-In-Time Count Training
Welcome to the Santa Barbara County Homeless Census & Survey 2020 Training!
Who We Are
THE CONTINUUM OF CARE (COC) PROGRAM
A comprehensive, county-wide group of dedicated service providers, public sector employees, and community members working together to leverage national, state, and local resources to end homelessness in our community.
In 2019, the CoC served 3800 unique persons, including 573 children.
Service providers work diligently to navigate available housing opportunities to assist persons experiencing homelessness secure permanent housing.
This tremendously impactful work resulted in nearly 600 persons exiting the homeless response system to permanent housing, including 82 veterans who now have a home!
The United Way of Northern Santa Barbara County
United Way is a community of donors, advocates, volunteers, and partners who fight for the health, education, and financial stability of every person in every community.

We believe everyone deserves a safe place to call home for good!

The Purpose of the Point-In-Time Count
The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) requires a Point-in-Time (PIT) Count of every homeless person during the last 10 days of January. This year, Santa Barbara County has decided to conduct the Count the morning of January 29th
The count provides a snapshot of who is homeless on a given night.
This information is used to plan local homeless assistance systems, apply for and allocate funds, and to raise public awareness of homelessness.
