What are the characteristics of Mecklenburg County’s homeless population and how has it changed over time? To try to answer those questions, Mecklenburg County each year performs the Point in Time (PIT) Count, a federally mandated act to determine the prevalence and characteristics of homeless people in the United States. The PIT Count helps communities better understand who is facing homelessness on a given night, so the communities can advocate for additional federal, state, and local resources to serve the homeless.
This report highlights the findings from the 2014 Charlotte-Mecklenburg PIT Count. Download the full report here.
