Check out Project WHY

Project WHY aims to facilitate genuine empathy through understanding homeless people’s individual stories. Nobody is inherently homeless. Everybody has a story & everybody has a WHY. Project WHY allows individuals experiencing homelessness to tell their stories about WHY they are where they are while restoring humanity’s empathy toward homelessness in America.

Homelessness by the Numbers

National Low Income Housing Coalition
2023 Out of Reach Report

AL-503 2023 Point-in-Time Count
(For more detail and previous years'
data, please click here.)

Out of Reach documents the significant gap between renters’ wages and the cost of rental housing across the United States.

Required by HUD, the Point-in-Time (PIT) count is a count of sheltered and unsheltered people experiencing homelessness on a single night in January. Each count is planned, coordinated, and carried out locally.
