PIT

  • The Point in Time Count (PIT) is conducted every year on the last Wednesday in January. The PIT is intended to provide a “snap shot” into what the homeless population is like in a particular area. Please see the link below to learn more about the dynamics of homelessness in Berks County.
  • PIT Count Update: Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, BCEH will be conducting an alternative PIT Count on January 22, 2021. In the past, BCEH relied heavily volunteers who have been very generous with their time. In an attempt to follow CDC guidelines and keep everyone safe, BCEH staff will be conducting the PIT Count internally. The PIT Count for 2021 will be conducted using observational surveys only. We are looking forward to resuming our standard PIT Count procedure in 2022.
