We work together with the All Neighbors Coalition to end homelessness in Dallas and Collin Counties.​

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. 

2023 State of Homelessness Address

Housing Forward hosted the annual State of Homelessness Address on April 13th.

This SOHA was hosted as a hybrid event, in person at the Communities Foundation of Texas and simultaneously streamed virtually. This insightful event had contributions from renowned experts in the field and impactful stories of success within the homeless response system.

Together, we can make homelessness rare, brief, and non-recurring in Dallas and Collin Counties. SOHA is a pivotal moment to unite as a community and renew our commitment to ending homelessness by promoting effective solutions and improving the homeless response system.

Thank you for your support!

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

Once a year, along with communities across the country, we take a census of our unhoused neighbors. The Point-in-Time (PIT) count, a requirement under Federal Law, helps communities understand the extent of homelessness, changing trends, and the measure of their success. In Dallas and Collin Counties, everybody counts.
