In collaboration with a wide array of community partners, Community Shelter Board leads an annual count of sheltered and unsheltered people experiencing homelessness in Columbus and Franklin County at a single point in time. Point-in-time counts are an important method used to better understand the extent and nature of homelessness. Communities across the nation conduct counts at the end of January, in partnership with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
Results of the January 2023 point-in-time count will be available in April, after comprehensive analysis is complete.
