Point-In-Time Homeless Count

The Point in Time Count is a 24-hour unduplicated count of the homeless in our region. Our CoC works with TVCH in order to obtain the most accurate information regarding the homeless in our community.

Findings from the homeless count demonstrate the need for resources for housing and services for homeless persons in each community. The count also helps determine (along with other dynamics) how much federal funding will be awarded from HUD for homeless programs. In addition, the count helps assess progress under the Tennessee State Plan to End Homelessness and provide important information for updating this plan. This statistical information also helps local county and city governments and agencies define the homeless situation in their area and search for grant funding to help provide and meet the needs of the community
