Homeless Assistance Programs: A Guide To Counting Unsheltered Homeless People

General Material
Published Date
October, 2004

The guide is offered in chapters and numeric sections and covers the basics of counting unsheltered homeless people, counting unsheltered people in public places, counts based on use of non-shelter services and sample data collection instruments. Advocates in search of a basic background on the topic should start with Chapter 2.
Note: The guide is not offered as a method for counting sheltered people but does reference Martha Burt's Practical Methods for Counting the Homeless: A Manual for State and Local Jurisdictions as a resource for counting sheltered homeless people.
