Point in Time Homeless Count

The Point in Time (PIT) Homeless Count & Survey is a coordinated event where volunteers count persons experiencing homelessness and ask them a number of questions to get a snapshot in time of those experiencing homelessness in the community.
2020 Point in Time Homeless Count and Survey

Following direction from Alberta’s Medical Officer of Health and Alberta Health, the 2020 PIT Count and Survey has been postponed in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. Please check back for updates on a possible future date.  

The PIT count is only one tool of many to collect data that allows us to identify trends and key issues related to homelessness in Red Deer, and measure progress on CHHIP. Shelter and program data is used by policy makers, service providers and funders in planning and making changes and decisions for housing related programs and services in Red Deer. The PIT Count and Survey is funded in part by the Government of Canada's Homelessness Partnering Strategy. More information can be found in our 2020 PIT Count FAQ (pdf) .
