The 2019 Homeless Count in Hillsborough County was conducted on Thursday, February 28, 2019, between the hours of 7 a.m. and 8 p.m. Approximately 372 volunteers, representing 66 local organizations, canvassed the County’s streets, alleys, wooded areas and places where homeless people are known to gather for meals, services and housings, surveying those experiencing homelessness to better capture their characteristics and experiences. Data was also obtained from the UNITY Information Network, our CoC’s HMIS system, for persons residing in emergency shelters, safe havens and transitional housing for homeless persons.
In accordance with and as required by this contract, THHI provided DCF’s Office on Homelessness a copy of the 2019 PIT Data as uploaded into HUD’s HDX Reporting System on April 30, 2019.
