CURRENT AND FUTURE PROJECTS
Point In Time Count
The Central Texas Homeless Coalition, along with Texas Homeless Network and collaborating agencies are participating in the Point In Time Count in Bell, Coryell, Hamilton, and Lampasas Counties January 25, 2018.
What is a Point-In-Time Count?
The Point-in-Time (PIT) count is a count of sheltered and unsheltered homeless persons on a single night in January. HUD requires that Continuums of Care conduct an annual count of homeless persons who are sheltered in emergency shelter and transitional housing on a single night. Continuums of Care also must conduct a count of unsheltered homeless persons every other year (odd numbered years). Each count is planned, coordinated, and carried out locally.
PIT data can provide insight into our community’s homeless population and service gaps. It provides a “snap shot” of what homelessness looks like on a single night in our communities.
Operation Stand Down and Killeen Community Triage
Fall and Spring Annually
The Killeen Community Triage will be held once per month where multiple organizations come together to assist individuals who need assistance in finding jobs, housing, getting identification, finding employment and other necessities of life. The exact dates are to be announced.
