Survey data is gathered from count volunteers who have installed the Counting Us app from the App Store or Google Play. This data is posted to the Regional Command Center where count administrators can monitor the annual homeless census in real-time. Watch this brief video to learn more.
Held during the last week of January, the annual Point in Time (PIT) count is an integral component in the quest to understand the scope of homelessness in the United States. Regions used to have no other option but to send volunteers out into the streets armed with clipboards and paper.
Contact Us if you would like a personal demo, have questions, or would like to sign up for our services. Once an agreement is in place, your region will be provided a unique code which count volunteers will enter into the Counting Us app after they register an account. That's it! You can also try it out now by downloading the app and using the set up key of "DEMO".
Simtech Solutions is available to provide virtual and/or onsite training on the usage of the Counting Us app and the Regional Command Center that has been built to receive data from the app. There are also FAQs found here and our virtual help desk is ready to answer any questions that may arise before or during the count.
