On the evening of January 28, 2019, MDHI conducted the 2019 Point in Time (PIT) count, alongside stakeholders and volunteers across the region. This count occurs annually nationwide during the last ten days in January and is regionally referred to as Everyone Counts. The data is used to inform HUD and provide a snapshot of homelessness on a given night in the winter, which provides information on the scope of homelessness in metro Denver, increases community understanding and helps inform efforts to respond to the needs of our unhoused neighbors.

Thank you to everyone who has been through the many technical homes and transitions of coordinated entry (Google Platform, Homelink, Salesforce) over the past 5 years. OneHome has reached its final destination in Clarity HMIS and while changes may occur within the platform to enhance OneHome for the community, the location of the data won’t be changing.
The U.S. Dept. of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Continuum of Care (CoC) Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) competition opened on July 3. On August 1, MDHI will host a meeting for all interested applicants (including new and existing grantees).

Jefferson County and participating municipalities are conducting a Comprehensive Homeless Count throughout Jefferson County during the month of August. This is not the HUD mandated Point-in-Time Count that takes place in January across the nation. This Count will expand on the HUD definition of homelessness in order to paint the full picture of what homelessness looks like in a suburban community where services are scattered and sometimes non-existent. By measuring the full scope, we have a chance of designing services and policies to prevent homelessness and ensure it is short-lived when it does occur.
