NEW HAVEN, CONN. (Jan. 23, 2018) — Members of the Veterans of Foreign Wars New Haven Post 12150 participated in the 2018 Point-In-Time (PIT) Count of the region’s homeless in New Haven.
On the cold and rainy winter night, post comrades canvassed parts of western and central New Haven including sections of Beaver Hills north of Whalley Ave. as members of Team 1. They walked around the designated streets, administering the PIT “Street Count” survey to individuals and families experiencing homelessness.
The Point-In-Time count provides needed data for federal and state funding used to house and maintain stable housing for the region’s homeless population. #2018PIT
