Our partners at the Community Alliance for the Homeless (CAFTH) organized their annual count for the homeless: The Point-In-Time Report for Memphis/Shelby County. As always, Promise Development Corporation was present and ready to serve in the count. The event took place January 24th this year.

According to CAFTH’s website:

” Point-In-Time is an annual count of sheltered and unsheltered homeless persons on a single night in January.  It is usually held toward the end of the month during the hours when unsheltered individuals are most likely to be present.

Required nationally by HUD (Housing and Urban Development), the PIT Count provides a snapshot of homelessness in Memphis and Shelby County, and it is a critical element for measuring our progress in our efforts to end homelessness.”
