This report is intended to help HUD, policymakers, and other interested parties, gain a better understanding of the impact of the current economic crisis on homelessness, as it reports quarterly compared to the AHAR which is done annually. It introduces the participating sites, with a brief summary on how they were selected, presents the annual point-in-time (PIT) counts of sheltered and unsheltered homeless individuals and families, gathered in the last week of January 2009; compares these 2009 PIT counts to the 2008 PIT counts for the same CoCs, examines the quarterly PIT counts collected by the CoCs at the end of March 2009, conveys some anecdotes and first-hand qualitative data from the CoCs, and describes what is coming in subsequent reports.
