2019 Oahu Point In Time Count

News Release from Partners in Care, Wednesday, February 27, 2019 

(UPDATED: Final Report May 15, 2019)

Aloha Partners In Care Community. Partners In Care is pleased to provide you with our first round of topline information for the 2019 Point In Time Count.

The total number of homeless individuals counted on O'ahu decreased by 184 (4%) over the past year. 

We will be posting regional and subpopulation breakdowns in the coming weeks.

New census count shows drop in homeless numbers, but …

SA: …In order to better understand the context behind this overall 4 percent decline, it is helpful to break out the sheltered and unsheltered figures from the aggregate. By doing so we see that the overall decrease can be attributed to a significant drop in the sheltered homeless population, from 2,350 in 2018 to 1,910 (NOTE: Revised to 2,052) this year. When assessing those numbers, however, we also noted that Waianae’s Ulu Ke Kukui transitional shelter closed in October. This closure removed more than 300 family shelter beds, thus creating a disproportionate impact on the survey. It is unclear whether the magnitude of this drop represents a permanent data point or a temporary anomaly.

At the same time, our data also reveal a substantial increase in the number of unsheltered individuals, from 2,145 in 2018 to 2,401. Once again, context is important. It is possible this increase is due to Partners in Care’s ability to mobilize over 600 volunteers to assist in the count, a significant increase from previous years. Having more volunteers meant we covered more ground than ever before. In Waianae, for example, volunteers were able to reach many individuals who indicated they had never been counted before.
