Thurston County to Conduct Point In Time Homeless Census January 24

​On Thursday, January 24, 2019, Thurston County will conduct the annual Homeless Census to determine who in Thurston County is homeless and why. During the PIT Homeless Census, all shelter and transitional housing providers will count people staying with them on the night of the count and volunteers will fan out across the County to find unsheltered homeless residents living out of doors, in vehicles, in abandoned buildings, and other places not intended for human habitation. Homeless guides will also go into homeless camps to survey residents.
