Why We Count

Our solutions are only as good as our information. The more informed we are allows us to understand and solve issues at a greater rate. The Greater Los Angeles Homeless Count is where we gather as much information as possible of those experiencing homelessness so that we can make informed decisions and creative solutions. It enables us to gather important data that is key for us to bring about an end to homelessness in Los Angeles.

Through the Greater Los Angeles Homeless Count, we will:
  • Inform the state of homelessness in LA
  • Bring vital community resources
  • Increase engagement bringing together leaders, residents and stakeholders.

How We Count
  • Street Count: A visual-only tally of everyone unsheltered experiencing homelessness in Los Angeles. This is the bulk of our volunteer opportunity and community engagement.
  • Shelter / Institutional Count: A count of everyone experiencing homelessness found in shelters, transitional housing, hospitals, and correctional facilities.
  • Demographic Surveys: A survey-based collection of all demographic information of those experiencing homelessness.
  • Youth Count: A survey-based count of unaccompanied and unsheltered youth and young families under the age of 24 who are experiencing homelessness.
Who We Are

The Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority (LAHSA) is a joint powers authority of the City and County of Los Angeles, created in 1993 to address the problems of homelessness in Los Angeles. It is responsible for funding and coordination of homeless services and housing assistance to support the homeless population of men, women and children in the City and County of Los Angeles.

Since 2005, LAHSA has coordinated six biennial Greater Los Angeles Homeless Counts. Beginning 2016, the Point-In-Time Count occurs annually. For more information visit www.lahsa.org.
