The City of Flagstaff will participate in the national annual census of point in time 2022 this February to record the number of vulnerable people affected by homelessness at any given point in time. This census, scheduled to take place February 23-25, 2022, will be conducted across the country.

Local data collected during the annual PIT census measures progress at the local and national levels towards preventing and ending homelessness. The information gathered from the surveys can help raise awareness of the challenges faced by people affected by homelessness in the community. Data is also shared at the local, state, and national levels to determine funding for homeless services across Coconino County. This count is required by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development.

Trained employees from the cities of Flagstaff and Coconino County, social services and volunteers will join mobile outreach teams that seek out individuals, families and youth affected by homelessness, as well as staff levels to conduct surveys in libraries and various locations.

The success of this census depends on volunteers from the community. Visit the PIT registration sheet online for more information or to register as a volunteer.

Volunteers can take part in a virtual Zoom training online on February 9 at 10:00 a.m. This training will also be made available for later viewing for those unable to attend the live training.

Each person affected by homelessness who completes this survey is eligible for a $5 participation incentive in Better Bucks, a hygiene kit, or a snack packet.

The success of this census depends on volunteers from the community. For more information or to register as a volunteer, please contact Sarah Rendon of Catholic Charities at [email protected] or 928-909-7731, Holly Creager of Flagstaff Shelter Services at [email protected] or 928- 607-7269 or James Kennedy of the Northland Family Help Center at [email protected] or 760-805-5803.
