During a 24-hour period in the last ten days of every January, homeless advocates across the nation seek to count the homeless persons within their coverage areas. The Point in Time (PIT) Count greatly affects funding, both private and public, for homeless services and affects the methodology of those services. A thorough count is crucial in identifying and understanding both the progress we’ve made and the gaps within our services. Mississippi Balance of State’s Count will consist of 5 Regional Coalition Counts throughout our 71-county coverage area. We believe that this would be a unique opportunity for organizations, ministries, and colleges/universities to engage our target population while providing a great service to your local community.
