The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) requires communities across the United States to conduct a Point-in-Time (PIT) count each year to determine the number of people experiencing homelessness in local communities. Here in Orange County, the Orange County Partnership to End Homelessness coordinates the annual count.
The Partnership is a coalition of service providers, local governments, and community members who work together to coordinate funding and bring best practices to the work of ending homelessness in Orange County. Here's how you can help improve outcomes for those who are experiencing homelessness.
