The City of Rancho Cucamonga is partnering with the County of San Bernardino and other communities throughout the County to count and survey homeless persons living in the County and throughout the City of Rancho Cucamonga. The 2015 Point-in-Time Homeless Count and Subpopulation Survey is a one-day street-based and service-based unduplicated count and subpopulation survey of sheltered and unsheltered individuals to identify how many people in San Bernardino County are homeless and their subpopulation characteristics on a given day. The Count and Survey will take place on Thursday, January 22, 2015.
The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the largest source of homeless program funding, requires that continuum of care (CoC) communities that receive HUD CoC funding (such as San Bernardino County) perform a “one-day, point-in-time” unduplicated count and subpopulation survey of sheltered (every year) and unsheltered (every other year) homeless individuals during the last week of January. Results of the 2015 Homeless Count and Subpopulation Survey will provide the County and local cities with benchmark numbers that will serve as the basis for developing local community and countywide strategies to help people exit life on the streets and by which the success of our efforts to provide effective programs serving homeless individuals and families can be measured.
