The Annual Homeless Point-in-Time Count is on Tuesday, February 22





The Mid-Alabama Coalition for the Homeless is conducting a one-night 
count of the homeless population in Montgomery.


"The Point-in-Time Count is an annual snapshot of our community’s homeless population. It is an important tool in helping MACH assess current needs and get first-hand input about local services." 
Lydia Pickett, executive director, MACH


“The Point-in-Time Count is an annual snapshot of our community’s homeless population. It is an important tool in helping MACH and its members assess current needs and get first-hand input about local services,” said Lydia Pickett, Executive Director of the Mid-Alabama Coalition for the Homeless. Many of the winter items distributed during the Point-in-Time Count were collected during MACH’s annual blanket drive in November. Pickett stated, “Many of the things we take for granted, such as a pair of socks or a warm coat, are invaluable to people who are experiencing homelessness. The Point-in-Time Count is one mechanism that allows local homeless service providers to have direct interactions with persons in need and begin conversations that can potentially connect them to resources to obtain stable, sustainable housing.”
