Point in Time- January 26, 2022

The Point in Time count in Wyoming is scheduled for January 26th, 2022.  This project takes place nationwide during the last 10 days of January.  Start getting your team of staff and volunteers ready and check back often for information. 

Wyoming’s annual Sheltered and Unsheltered Point in Time (PIT) and Housing Inventory Count (HIC) is January 26, 2022.

What is the Sheltered Point in Time and Housing Inventory Counts?
The Sheltered PIT and HIC is an annual event that allows our communities to take stock of the residential space available for members of the community who are experiencing homelessness. By counting all persons who were in a homeless, residential project on the night of the event, we are also able to measure the demographics of those served by homeless services on the date of this state-wide event.

When is the Sheltered PIT and HIC Count?
This year’s PIT and HIC event will take place at sunset, the night of January 26th  through sunup of the 27th.  Each year the PIT and HIC happen within the last 10 days of January to capture what situations persons are experiencing during some of the worst weather of the season and when personal resources can be at their lowest.

What project types are included in the Sheltered PIT and HIC Count?

Sheltered Point in Time (PIT):

  • Emergency Shelter (ES)
  • Safe Haven (SH)

How do we prepare for the Sheltered PIT and HIC and Unsheltered PIT Count?
