Point-in-Time Homeless Count

Staff and volunteers from local homeless shelters and community organizations will be conducting a count of homeless individuals in Eau Claire, Buffalo, Trempealeau and Jackson counties starting on July 24th, 2024.

>> Sign Up to Volunteer <<

Known nationally as the Point-In-Time count, the activity is intended to provide a statistically reliable, unduplicated count of people experiencing homelessness during a designated period twice each year. The data collected during the count is included in the Annual Homelessness Assessment Report (AHAR) that is provided to the U.S. Congress. Homeless information is also reported to the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development, and is utilized to develop the Housing Inventory Chart for the Balance of State Continuum of Care.

Representatives from Western Dairyland Economic Opportunity Council, Family Promise of the Chippewa Valley, Catholic Charities, Bolton Refuge House, and Lutheran Social Services will begin canvassing at 11 p.m. on July 24th, and will be looking for individuals who are experiencing homelessness, providing outreach, and obtaining information necessary for the count.

Additional volunteers are needed on July 24th, both in the city of Eau Claire and in rural areas. Prospective volunteers may call Western Dairyland at 715-836-7511 or sign up online here.
