On January 18, 2012, the CHF in partnership with several organizations conducted the first PIT Count since 2008. Data was collected from service providers and a comprehensive street enumeration was undertaken to capture as accurate a number as possible. Approximately 160 volunteers canvassed 28 street ‘zones’ or known areas for rough sleepers (those sleeping outside). Mobile teams in vehicles led by Calgary Police Services, City of Calgary Animal and Bylaw Services and street outreach workers covered seven remote city areas while public and private sector partners added six additional areas including Fish Creek Park. Eighty organizations provided data and basic demographics in conjunction with the street count. This report documents their findings. [Taken from report]
