Understanding Our Homeless Population

Every two years, Marin County does a complete count of every person experiencing homelessness in Marin. This Point-in-Time Count helps us understand the needs of our population and track our progress decreasing homelessness.

     

    2021 Vehicle Count

    Marin did not conduct a full Point-in-Time Count in 2021 due to the COVID pandemic. However, as one step in determining the extent of new homelessness, Marin did a no-contact count of people living in cars and RVs.

    Marin County's 2019 Point-in-Time Count is took place on Monday, January 28, 2019. In the early morning hours, volunteers teamed up with expert guides (individuals currently/previously experiencing homelessness) recommended by service providers. These teams drove/walked all over assigned routes from 5:00 AM to 9:00 AM.
