2023 Oahu Point In Time Count Community Report Released

from Partners In Care, May 11, 2023

The O‘ahu Point In Time Count (PIT) Count is an annual street and shelter count that  determines the number of people experiencing homelessness on O‘ahu on a single night in  January. This project included a brief survey to identify the needs and characteristics of  individuals and families experiencing homelessness. Every Continuum of Care in the U.S. is  required to submit PIT Count results to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban  Development (HUD) as part of a national effort to identify the extent of homelessness across  the country.

Main Findings:

  • 4,028 people experiencing homelessness on O‘ahu on the night of January 22, 2023
  • 59% Unsheltered -- 2,365 individuals were staying on the streets or other places not meant for human habitation
  • 41% Sheltered -- 1,663 individuals were staying in Emergency Shelters, Transitional Housing or Vet Safe Haven

Change from 2022 - 2023

  • Total PIT Count +2% 
  • Unsheltered Count +0.4%
  • Sheltered Count +4%

The data suggests that the number of people in the PIT Count peaked in 2017 and began decreasing in 2018 before increasing slightly from 2022 to 2023. In 2018, the number of unsheltered bypassed the number of sheltered for the first time. The unsheltered numbers increased significantly in 2019 and then decreased slightly in 2020 and has somewhat stabilized in the last couple of counts.
