North Carolina Coalition to End Homelessness

2006 NC Homeless Point in Time Count

The N.C. Interagency Council for Coordinating Homeless Programs sponsored a third annual point-in-time survey on January 15, 2006. The survey was conducted in over 80 counties. It provides a conservative, but defensible, unduplicated count of people who were homeless in our state on one given night. The survey found that there were 9,521 people identified as homeless, including at least 2,490 persons in families, 1,333 of which were children. This is a decrease over the 2004 count, partially attributable to non-participation by some local community agencies. However, in other cases, local decreases may be the result of new initiative connected to Ten-Year Plans to End Homelessness.
