Everyone Counts: St. John's Point-in-Time Count 2016

On November 30, 2016, End Homelessness St. John’s, its partners and over 100 volunteers, conducted St. John’s first biennial homeless Point-in-Time Count, titled ‘Everyone Counts’. This initiative included a count of the number of people experiencing homelessness in St. John’s on a single day as well as a focused youth outreach approach during the count week.

There were at least 166 people experiencing homelessness in St. John’s on that day, including 38 youth aged 16 to 24 years. This number represents the minimum number of people experiencing homelessness in St. John’s on one day. During the course of a year, however, it is estimated that approximately 800 people experience homelessness in St. John’s.
