Homeless Count

Each year the Homeless Leadership Coalition conducts a one-day count of people who are homeless or in transitional housing in Deschutes, Crook, and Jefferson counties. This count is a part of a State and national effort to identify the number of people struggling to find appropriate and adequate housing. 

The Coalition has released the data collected from the annual Point-In-Time Homeless Count, conducted on Thursday, January 29, 2015. This year, 2,087 individuals self-identified as persons experiencing homelessness within the tri-county region. Nearly one of every five individuals surveyed were living in a car, squatting, or camping. Compared to the previous year, 160 more persons experiencing homelessness were unsheltered, a harsh reality for the quality of life Central Oregon aspires to sustain for the families that live here.
