Everyone Counts, the Point-in-Time Count, is intended to provide a snapshot of a community's homeless population on a given night in late March. It is one way to record the number of individuals
and families staying in temporary emergency shelter or those staying outside without adequate and safe accommodation.
The Point-in-Time Count is an important effort that ensures the voices of people experiencing homelessness in our community are heard and efforts are made to provide appropriate, accessible services. The count also helps to develop strategies and effective plans to measure progress towards ending homelessness in Kamloops.
The PiT Count is a huge coordinated effort between Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC), Homelessness Partnering Strategy (HPS), the City of Kamloops, local non-profit organizations, and volunteers.
