State of Homelessness & Point-In-Time (PIT) Count

Housing Forward leads data collection and evaluation for the homeless response system in Dallas and Collin Counties through specific programs. One way we share the data and evaluation for our homeless response system is through our annual State of Homelessness Address. 

State of Homelessness Address

On Friday, May 13, 2022, Housing Forward, formerly Metro Dallas Homeless Alliance (MDHA), held its eighth annual State of Homelessness Address. The State of Homelessness Address discusses the results and analysis of the Point-in-Time (PIT) count, an annual census of our unhoused neighbors. The address also shared data collected over the past year, actions taken by the homeless rehousing system, trends we are seeing in the system locally and nationally as well as the next steps the community must take to make homelessness rare, brief, and non-recurring in Dallas and Collin Counties.

Speakers Included:

  • Joli Angel Robinson, Housing Forward President and CEO
  • Peter Brodsky, Housing Forward Board Chair
  • Ashley Brundage, Board Chair of the All Neighbors Coalition

Dallas and Collin Counties Point-in-Time (PIT) Count

Once a year, along with communities across the country, we count our homeless friends. The Count, a requirement under Federal Law, helps communities understand the extent of homelessness, changing trends, and the measure of their success in making homelessness rare, brief and nonrecurring. It’s also an important reminder that in Dallas and Collin Counties, everybody counts.
