Point in Time Count
Each year during the last week in January, the Housing Visions Continuum of Care attempts to count the number of homeless individuals in Catawba County. The count also assists us in being able to collect other types of data to help in identifying gaps in services and barriers that prevent people from becoming successfully housed. During the collection of this valuable information, we try to provide those that are homeless with some basic items. These items are able to be provided to those that are homeless through donations from the community. Please consider collecting items to provide during the Point In Time Count and help our agencies collect valuable information to help people move from homelessness into permanent housing.
