2013 Tri-J Homeless Census Released

ATLANTA - On the night of January 28, 2013, the Metro Atlanta Tri-Jurisdictional (Tri-J) Collaborative (City of Atlanta, Fulton County and DeKalb County) on Homelessness and Pathways Community Network Institute, along with over 400 community volunteers, conducted its sixth homeless population point-in-time count. The homeless census consisted of two types of enumerations, an unsheltered count and a sheltered count, which together result in a comprehensive picture of homelessness in the Tri-J. Overall, a total of 6,664 homeless people were counted in the Tri-J area on count night. 

Five times as many individuals as family members were counted on census night. Of the total number of homeless people counted, unaccompanied adults staying in emergency shelters comprised the largest group (33 percent) with unaccompanied adults sleeping in unsheltered locations second (30 percent). The largest number (39 percent) of individuals was staying in emergency shelters with the majority (50 percent) of family members also found in emergency shelters.
