This annual one-day event is a requirement under Federal Law. It is an unduplicated count of people experiencing homelessness. The count provides a snapshot of our homeless population, both sheltered and unsheltered, on a single night to help determine a greater understanding and most importantly – data – to plan local homeless assistance systems, public services, and public awareness of the growing impact of homelessness. The PIT Count takes place in every city in the United States at the end of January.
Instead of having our big giveaway during the PIT Count in January 2023, we are partnering with Waxahachie Bible Church’s “Love in Action” Giveaway to provide coats and other items. Our PIT Outreach Teams will take meals direct to our homeless community instead of offering them at the church.
