Local funders and service providers require current data to be used in local plans to help the homeless and the neighbourhoods that are impacted by increasing numbers of people experiencing homelessness.

On Tuesday August 15th, in collaboration with Duncan and the North Cowichan Valley, the Ladysmith Resources will be conducting a Point-in-Time (PiT) Homeless Count and Housing Needs Survey.

A Point-in-Time Count takes place over the course of one day. Trained volunteers and staff from local service providers will count and survey individuals who are staying in shelters, short-term housing, vulnerable housing situations, or are without shelter altogether.
