Homelessness in South Carolina

Every year, the PIT (Point-in-Time) count is performed as federally mandated by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development for all communities receiving federal funds through the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Grants Program.  The PIT count takes an unduplicated census of people experiencing homelessness - sheltered or not - on a given night in January and helps communities better understand the magnitude and characteristics of its homeless population.  To see the full report, click here.
