How Many People are Homeless in Clackamas County?

Clackamas County does a Point in Time count every other year, as required by Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Using a team of volunteers, we explore the county on a specific day, seeking people who are unsheltered – sleeping outdoors, in camps, on the street, in vehicles or in abandoned buildings or sheds. We also seek to include people who are living on the couch of a friend or family member, or otherwise living in an overcrowded situation due to lack of permanent housing.
