The project logo 2021 Virginia Beach Point-in-Time Count

Using the map below, help us identify areas where individuals have been known to live without shelter. Virginia Beach is required to conduct an annual Point-in-Time (PIT) Count of the homeless population to determine how much federal funding our community will receive for programs and services that help the homeless. Through the PIT Count, the community is able to learn how many people are homeless, where they are located, how they became homeless and what services they need. ​The more we know about our homeless population, the better we can serve their needs. 

The information you provide will help guide our Homeless Outreach Team during the 2021 PIT Count on Jan. 27 - 31 and help ensure that everyone who should be included is counted and assessed for services. Signs that an individual is living unsheltered include personal belongings left behind, a structure resembling a bed is present, individual(s) have been seen there on multiple occasions, etc.  We are asking for visual observations only -- please do not engage the individuals.
