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.

2024 Count

The 2024 Point in Time Count will take place on January 23rd. Marin is not currently soliciting volunteers for the 2024 PIT.

2022 Count

The 2022 Marin County Point-in-Time was a community-wide effort conducted on February 17, 2022.



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.
