Point-in-Time (PIT) Count
The San Joaquin Continuum of Care (SJ CoC) is seeking at least 500 volunteers to help conduct the 2022 Point-in-Time (PIT) Count with 100 volunteers anticipated to be needed in Lodi. The PIT Count is, a bi-annual effort to account for the total number of unsheltered individuals that call San Joaquin County (SJC) home. In addition to being a Housing and Urban Development (HUD) mandate, the PIT Count provides vital unsheltered count data to help inform local strategies, planning and policies to address housing and homeless issues. Most importantly, obtaining an accurate count determines how much funding our community is eligible to receive from local, state and federal resources. By counting the number of unsheltered households in our community, we can determine the scope of the problem and the resources needed to get folks permanently off the streets.
If you would like to be a part of creating solutions to address homelessness and are over the age of 18, the PIT Count is a great way to get involved. City of Lodi PIT Count date is January 26, 2022 at Gravity Church from 7am to 1pm, each city in SJC will be on a different date if you would like to volunteer on multiple dates.
