HUD Secretary Participates in D.C. Point-in-Time Count

Highlights on-the-ground tools the HUD uses every day to address homelessness.

U.S. Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Secretary Marcia Fudge went out with Washington, D.C., Mayor Muriel Bowser last week to assist in the 2022 Point-In-Time (PIT) Count. They went around the capital city with a number of federal facilitators to count the number of sheltered and unsheltered people experiencing homelessness on one night in January, a count which takes place annually to gather valuable population data.

“The PIT Count is one of the most important tools the federal government has to understand local needs and to measure trends in homelessness through an annual single-night snapshot,” said HUD Secretary Fudge. “And that’s why it was so important for me to participate in this year’s count and to hear directly from people we serve.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Secretary Fudge as she endeavors to support the D.C. mayor in addressing homelessness.
  • For Mayor Bowser to seek God’s guidance as she oversees the management of the nation’s capital city.
  • For those who are homeless in Washington and in cities around the country.
