for PIT Count and data entry efforts
|TPCH thanks each individual and organization that volunteered to help make the annual Point In Time (PIT) Homeless Count successful!
Volunteers, both TPCH and community members, play an essential role. Their tasks include:
· Visiting shelters that are seasonal or don’t participate in the TPCH Homeless Management Information System (HMIS) on Jan. 22, 2019 to interview guests.
· Spreading throughout Pima County the morning of Jan. 23, 2019 to interview people experiencing homelessness who slept unsheltered the night before.
· Inputting data gathered from interviews into HMIS.
Equally vital to completing the annual PIT are service providers who gather and accurately record information on their shelter guests and program participants.
These same providers are simultaneously updating their data on the number of beds and units that they currently operate that are dedicated for use by people experiencing homelessness. TPCH also report these housing data to HUD in its annual Housing Inventory Chart

Home is a notion that only nations of the homeless fully appreciate and only the uprooted comprehend.
