Point-in-Time Count

On the night of January 24, Arlington and other jurisdictions in the area will conduct the annual “point-in-time” count of people who are homeless. Volunteers will survey wooded areas, under bridges and overpasses, and other areas where people without a home are known to sleep, and also interview those they encounter.


This year, Arlington is adding a special youth component to the count. Youth under the age of 24 who are homeless or have experienced homelessness are encouraged to stop by Arlington Mill Community Center for pizza, fun, and an opportunity to share their story, both in-person and online with the hashtag #123YouthCount.
