Although we submitted 129 surveys (209 total number of people) to THN, only 70 surveys qualified under HUD’s homeless definition: only those staying in emergency shelter, Domestic Violence shelters, transitional housing, hotel/motel (paid for by voucher), and places not meant for human habitation are homeless for the PIT.
The highlighted numbers from the PIT Survey are the ones that agencies will use when applying for HUD grant money.
Please be careful when using numbers from the tabulated results in the PIT Survey. For example: 61.5 percent of people reported having had a domestic violence experience. This number reflects 61.5% of the 65 people who responded to the question and not all 153 people counted in the survey.
CVHPC To Conduct Secondary PIT Survey
In the next few months, we are going to conduct our own survey, expanding the PIT Survey definition of homeless to also include the number of at-risk people living in the Concho Valley (people and families that are couch-surfing and living doubled up). This number will be more in line with the numbers used by Health and Human Services and many of the organizations in San Angelo for other than housing purposes.
If you would like to take part in planning and conducting the survey, please contact Scott Heiser at firstname.lastname@example.org.
