Point-In-Time Count

The 2024 point-in-time count of people experiencing homelessness in Columbus and Franklin County will be held on Thursday, January 25, 2024.

Community Shelter Board will lead Columbus’ and Franklin County’s annual count of the area’s sheltered and unsheltered homeless populations, including adults, youth, and children. Point-in-time counts are an important method used to better understand the extent and nature of homelessness in communities across the nation. The count helps us address housing needs in our community and helps track progress toward the goal of ending homelessness.

For news reporters: Reserve an interview spot during the 1/25/2024 point-in-time count.
