2015 Housing Inventory Count reports have been posted!  (Pg. 10 for Pasco)

New HUD information released!  View several reports published here, including the AHAR: Part 2!

To demonstrate the current level of need among people experiencing homelessness, HUD released its 2014 Annual Homeless Assessment Report (AHAR) Part 2.

The report shows a nationwide decline of 6.3% in homelessness since HUD began tracking this information in 2007. While this reduction is substantial with more than 100,000 fewer people in shelter programs than in 2007, in the past year we have seen an increase of 4.6% in the number of people using shelter programs. This increase, however, occurred in conjunction with a 10% reduction in the number of people homeless at a point in time in unsheltered locations. This progress is attributable to the hard work of local homeless service providers nationwide.
