The point-in-time count of homelessness in Portland and Multnomah County provides a snapshot of the individuals and families experiencing homelessness on a given night in our community. The data collected from the count ensures our community’s continued eligibility for state and federal funding and helps the City of Portland, Multnomah County and their nonprofit partners plan for the funding and services needed to meet the needs of people experiencing homelessness in our community.
Data for the point-in-time count comes from the Street Count, which is sponsored by the Portland Housing Bureau, and the One Night Shelter Count, which is sponsored by Multnomah County. The City, County and their partners work together to achieve unprecedented levels of coordination between the two counts.
