Annual homeless Point in Time Count moved to Feb. 24

Washington state has moved the statewide annual homeless Point in Time Count to Feb. 24 after the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) approved its request to postpone the event by a month because of ongoing COVID concerns.

Due to the high numbers of COVID-19 cases across the county that are driven by the Omicron variant, HUD allowed states to move the annual count, which is done on the same day across the country every January, if the case rates would interfere with the count. After talking to all counties across the state, the state’s Department of Commerce announced the change in date.

The local Point in Time Count will be held in Wenatchee at Link Transit, 300 S. Columbia St. The event will be held from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. along the Wenatchee Avenue side of the property. Local non-profits will attend to provide resources they have available to people who are experiencing homelessness and also raise awareness of their work in the community.

On Feb. 24, homeless housing providers then will be sending outreach teams across Chelan and Douglas counties to connect with individuals and gain an understanding of their situation and provide resources to them.

If you are interested in volunteering with the event, or your nonprofit or business provides services to people experiencing homelessness and you would like an information table at the event, email Sasha Sleiman, Chelan County Housing Program coordinator, at sasha.sleiman@co.chelan.wa.us.
