Every year, Centre County takes part in a statewide initiative called Point-in-Time (PIT) to provide outreach and collect valuable data on our unsheltered homeless population. Often times, this population may be found living in a tent, a car, a hallway, a campground site, abandoned building, or even under a bridge. They may also be finding respite at various retailers, restaurants, libraries and other community buildings.
This year, teams will be out in the community on Thursday, January 26, looking to connect with the unsheltered population to ask where they slept the night before, provide care packages, and offer assistance from a variety of community services and programs. Additionally, teams are also interested in speaking with individuals and families who are homeless, but “doubled-up” (i.e., staying with family and/or friends), and not considered unsheltered for this count. This would give teams the opportunity to provide information about our county’s emergency, temporary, and permanent housing options.
In an effort to most effectively connect with these individuals and families, Centre County Office of Adult Services is asking for your assistance. If you know the whereabouts of someone who is unsheltered or “doubling-up,” please contact Faith R. Ryan, Director, via email ([email protected]) or phone (814-355-6768) no later than Monday, January 23.
