June 23, 2018 in | Comments (0)

San Bernardino, Ca – The Interagency Council on Homelessness released the 2018 Point-in-Time Count (PITC) for the County of San Bernardino.

The recent PITC affirmed that countywide efforts to reduce the chronically homeless population have been successful with an 18 percent reduction in 2018. However, Southern California’s affordable housing crisis is negatively impacting an emerging population of homeless adults, particularly seniors on a fixed income.  

Overall, data collected on January 25, 2018 tells us that there are 2,118 homeless people living in San Bernardino County up from 1,866 in 2017, a 13.5 percent increase of 252 newly homeless individuals. A total of 646 homeless individuals were recorded in the City of San Bernardino, with 313 in sheltered housing and 333 unsheltered.
