Utica/Rome/Oneida and Madison Counties CoC

Point-In-Time Census of
Homeless Persons and Households


Overall, the homeless population in our CoC has declined in recent years, but the sheltered homeless count is up between 2015 and 2017 largely due to the addition of a new project in Madison County.

Our one-day point in time census went up from 182 total persons in 2011 to 200 total persons in 2013 after Recovery Act funds for homelessness prevention and rapid re-housing projects expired in 2012 while the great recession was still affecting our region. The total one-day count went down to 140 persons in January 2015 but has come up to 162 persons in 2017…an increase of 16% from two years ago accounted for primarily by the addition of a new transitional housing program for families in Madison County.

A complete report of our 2017 Sheltered and Unsheltered PIT count results is available here.

Highlights of the 2017 Sheltered and Unsheltered Point-in-Time count relative to the previous year we counted both sheltered and unsheltered homeless (2015) include:

Increases in the number of:

  • Adults with children in shelters and transitional projects (from 23 to 57)
  • Adults with serious mental illness (from 18 to 48)
  • Adults with chronic substance abuse (from 41 to 49)
  • Adult victims of domestic violence (33 to 37)

Decreases in the number of:

  • Chronically homeless persons (under HUD’s new definition of “chronically homeless”)
  • Unaccompanied homeless youth age 18-24 (from 20 to 12)
  • Those with prior military service/veterans (from 4 to 0)
