Pasadena Homeless Count
How many people are currently homeless in Pasadena? How many of them are families, youth, or veterans? The answers to these questions and more can be answered by our annual point-in-time counts. This count, called the Homeless Count & Subpopulation Survey, provides a snapshot of homelessness in our community on one day. The count includes people who are both temporarily sheltered (e.g. emergency shelters and transitional housing) and unsheltered.
Point-in-time counts are important because they establish the dimensions of the problem of homelessness in our community and help us to plan services and programs to appropriately address our local needs, track our progress towards our goal of ending homelessness, and identify strengths and gaps in a community’s current homelessness assistance system.
