Homelessness in Guelph – New Point in Time Count

In April of 2015, the County Social Services Department administered a Point in Time (PIT) count across the service area (Guelph and Wellington) for the first time in an effort to measure the extent of homelessness in the community, as well as to capture some key demographic information of the homeless population.

This April 2015 PIT count represents the introduction of an annual PIT count for Guelph Wellington with the goals of:

·       Improving community awareness and understanding of homelessness,

·       Helping to monitor and assess developing trends over time,

·       Providing a method through which to measure progress, and

·       Strengthening efforts to end homelessness.

Additionally, this PIT count aligns with the goals of the 10-Year Housing and Homelessness Plan (HHP) for Guelph Wellington by improving community awareness and understanding of changes to the homelessness population over time.
