2021 Shelter Point in Time Count Dashboard is live on the PIC Website

News Release from Partners in Care, June 2, 2021  

The 2021 Shelter Point in Time Count Dashboard is live on the PIC Website!

The Sheltered Count occurred on January 25, 2021 and the Unsheltered Count was cancelled this year due to COVID-19.

(NOTE: In 2020 about 2,775 people were in shelters.  By 2021 1/3 of sheltered homeless had been thrown back out on to the streets with COVID as the excuse.)

Key findings:

  • Total: 1,853 Individuals in 1,065 Households
  • Emergency Shelter: 1,185 Individuals
  • Transitional Housing: 640 Individuals
  • Safe Haven: 28 Individuals
  • 47% identified as Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander
  • 41% identified as Native Hawaiian as their sole race/ethnicity or as part of a Multi Racial identity
  • Native Hawaiians stayed in Shelter longer on average as compared to Non-Native Hawaiians
  • 20% of the population were keiki between the ages of 5-17
  • Men accounted for 54% of the population
  • Single Households accounted for 35% of the population

The Dashboards are interactive! So feel free to click around on different areas to see how race, household structure, gender or family size effect other demographics! And don’t forget to click on the Purple Button as there are 2 Dashboards in 1!

If you ever get stuck with different filters selected at the bottom right hand corner of the dashboard is an left facing arrow with a line at the end, clicking on it will reset the dashboard to its original state.

COVID emergency engineered to Boost Homelessness by pushing them out of Shelters

SA: …The 2021 shelter Point-in-Time Count totaled 1,853 individuals who made up 1,065 households. The count included those in emergency shelters, transitional housing and safe havens — permanently supported housing for single, homeless adults with mental illness. That number was the lowest count for sheltered people in at least 10 years.

(Translation: We spent the last year pushing the homeless out of shelters.  This will now be used as an excuse to let the homeless stay on the streets.  See how this works?)

Partners in Care Executive Director Laura E. Thielen explained that social distancing for public health reasons during the pandemic was the reason shelter space likely decreased.

“A lot of that is due to the fact that there has to be depopulation of congregate shelters during COVID,” she said.

“They all had to decrease their numbers to reflect the CDC (Centers of Disease Control and Prevention) guidelines of proper distancing during COVID.”…

(Social Engineering: Nobody used the emergency orders to build SRO housing to make up for the shelter reductions and provide a surplus of space for bums so we can then legally enforce a vagrancy law thus eliminating homelessness once and for all.)
