Homeless Census

The Homeless Census

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) requires all Continuums of Care throughout the country to conduct an annual Homeless Census, also known as a Point in Time Count. This count includes people in shelter and transitional housing (Shelter Count) as well as those experiencing unsheltered homelessness (Unsheltered Count). In Southern Nevada, the Homeless Census activities take place annually during the last ten days of January. The gathered data is used to assess homelessness locally and nationally and is published yearly on HUD’s HUD Exchange website for Continuums of Care and the general public to access.

Operation HOME! is a community-wide effort to quickly and permanently house members of the Southern Nevada community who are in need of a home.
Our community is investing resources to get and keep tenants housed. Financial assistance, tenant case management and landlord support is available to make this happen.

Help find homes for 2,022 unhoused individuals by the end of 2022.

In Southern Nevada, we need more affordable rental units to help people in our community become financially independent and thrive. Our community needs more studio, 1 and 2 bedroom rentals as well as bigger units.
