HUD (U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development) requires that Continuum of Care (CoC) Programs conduct an annual count of people experiencing homelessness who are sheltered in emergency shelters, transitional housing, and Safe Havens on a single night.
Continuums of Care also must conduct a count of unsheltered people experiencing homelessness every other year (odd-numbered years).
Each count is planned, coordinated, and carried out locally.
The Housing Inventory Count (HIC) is a point-in-time inventory of provider programs within a Continuum of Care that provide beds and units dedicated to serving people experiencing homelessness (and, for permanent housing projects, where homeless at entry, per the HUD homeless definition), categorized by five Program Types: Emergency Shelter; Transitional Housing; Rapid Re-housing; Safe Haven; and Permanent Supportive Housing.
Volunteers will work together in teams of six to cover portions of Forsyth County in this overnight count. To learn more about the volunteer opportunity, click the link below.
