Utica/Rome/Oneida and Madison Counties CoC

Point-In-Time Census of
Homeless Persons and Households


On January 24, 2018, our CoC identified
162 total sheltered homeless persons
.

Since its peak level of 200 sheltered homeless persons on a single day during the early years of the Great Recession (2012), the total one-day count of homeless persons in our CoC has declined substantially. 

However, in our last count (January 2018) we saw an increase in sheltered homeless persons - up by 26 persons from the count conducted in January 2016.  Most of the additional homeless persons and families we counted in 2018 resided in a relatively new transitional housing program for families with children in Madison County or at the Utica Rescue Mission adult men’s shelter.

A complete report of our 2018 Sheltered and Unsheltered PIT count results is available here.

Highlights of the 2018 Sheltered and Unsheltered Point-in-Time count relative to the previous year we counted both sheltered homeless (2016) include:


Increases in the number of:

  • Households with children residing in shelters and transitional housing projects (from 54 to 71).
  • Adults with serious mental illness (from 26 to 48).
  • Adults with chronic substance abuse (from 39 to 47).
  • Adult victims of domestic violence (45 to 52).
  • Chronically homeless persons (under HUD’s new definition of “chronically homeless”) from 13 to 17.

Decreases in the number of:

  • Unaccompanied homeless youth age 18-24 (from 40 to 18)
