Homeless in Hawaii

Posted on Sep 1, 2015 in

The State of Hawai’i will work to reduce homeless and to support the needs of people experiencing homelessness.

This goal, in part, is measured through the annual Statewide Homeless Point in Time Count, which is conducted in January of each year by the Continua of Care (CoCs) — Partners in Care on Oahu, and Bridging the Gap on the islands of Maui, Kaua’i, and Hawai’i.  Point in Time Count data from 2005 to 2022 is illustrated in the dashboard below. Between 2016 and 2022, the state has experienced a 24.6% overall decrease in homeless individuals as identified in the Point in Time Count – a decrease of 1,948 people.  Please note that there was no unsheltered Point in Time Count conducted in 2021.  Additionally, the Point in Time Count is just one dataset related to homelessness.  Other relevant datasets can be viewed here.
