The Rural Nevada Continuum of Care (RNCoC) comprises the 15 rural counties within Nevada. Since 2005, the RNCoC has conducted a Point in Time Count annually in order to measure and monitor trends and changes in homelessness on local and national levels and track progress toward ending homelessness. The 2021 Point in Time Count Report summarizes the activities and results of the 2020 PIT Count, which took place on January 28, 2021.
The annual Point in Time (PIT) count would not be possible without the contributions and effort of many groups and individuals, including social service and other county agencies, law enforcement, non-profit organizations, school district McKinney-Vento liaisons, Bitfocus staff, and volunteers. Of particular note are the contributions of individuals serving as county leads, who played a critical role in organizing outreach teams, rallying community support, and collecting, submitting, and validating data. The spirit and contributions of participants reflect their commitment to their communities and their desire to do what they can with few resources, as well as the coordinated and collaborative nature of the RNCoC.
Thank you to all contributors for your commitment of time and your ongoing efforts to help combat homelessness in Nevada.
