Annual Homeless Census and Survey

Hills in Sonoma County

The Continuum of Care for Sonoma County, Santa Rosa and Petaluma, the Department, and its partners have been required to conduct a point-in-time census of sheltered and unsheltered homeless families and individuals in the last 10 days of January in alternate (odd-numbered) years. Beginning in 2015, we began conducting a point-in-time census of sheltered and unsheltered homeless individuals and families on an annual basis. 

The 2023 Homeless Point in Time Count will take place on Friday, January 27th from approximately 5:00am to 10:00am. If you are interested in registering or would like to know more information, please use the following link:
