2022 PIT Count
The purpose of the Point-in-Time (PIT Count) is to obtain a snapshot census of people experiencing homelessness in the Spokane community on one night in February.
The PIT Count will be on Thursday, February 24th, 2022.
The count includes people who, on the night of the count, are homeless and:
- Sheltered (living in emergency shelters or transitional housing) or
- Unsheltered (staying outdoors or places not designed for habitation, including vehicles, streets, parks, and abandoned buildings)
The PIT Count is an essential element in our effort to end homelessness, as the data gathered from this census shows us so much more than how many people are homeless in Spokane - we also learn more about who
is homeless and why
. The PIT Count presents a great opportunity to raise awareness of the myriad challenges our homeless citizens face, hear personal experiences from those experiencing homelessness, and demonstrate the compassion and generosity of the Spokane community!

Please note: PPE will be provided to all volunteers and training sessions will be announced soon.
