Point in Time Count

Homeless Care Council of Northwest Alabama

Alabama is taking part in a national effort to count the number of homeless in need of services.  The Homeless Care Council of Northwest Alabama is going over the numbers gathered from the Point in Time count conducted last week.    

          The “Point in Time” count is done by organizations all across the country to help get an accurate count of the homeless. Those numbers are then given to the Department of Housing and Urban Development where they allocate funds for programs based on the need.
