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.
