County participates in Point in Time Count of those experiencing homelessness


The 2022 numbers will be released in the coming months ahead of a coordinated effort to strategically work toward ending homelessness in our region

Arapahoe County participated in the annual Point in Time Count of those experiencing homelessness on the evening of January 24.

This effort raises public awareness, promotes collaboration across the region and provides needed data. The goal is to inform local government and community partner response efforts to help house our neighbors.

This is done in coordination with seven metro area counties through the Metro Denver Homeless Initiative (MDHI) and is required by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).

Arapahoe County counts those experiencing homelessness across all jurisdictions except within the City of Aurora which stands alone as an individual HUD jurisdiction. Homelessness knows no boundaries and the data collected across the metro region informs coordinated efforts to support our most vulnerable community members. Including Aurora figures, more than 1,100 individuals were counted in 2021—a 55% increase in just two years.

The 2022 numbers will be released in the coming months. In March, Arapahoe County will kick off a coordinated effort with local municipalities, service providers and community agencies to strategically work toward ending homelessness in our region through a Homeless Coordinating Committee.
