The Continuum of Care gathers data on homelessness in our region during the Point in Time Count by administering the Housing and Vulnerability Survey. This survey provides insights from volunteer participants who share their experiences
with the community.
The information is used to identify needs and barriers to housing within the homeless community. The health questions are used to support agencies that provide healthcare and outreach to vulnerable populations within our communities.
The survey answers are codified by JMU’s Research Methods class under the direction of Professor Rita Poteyeva, Ph.D., Assistant Professor in the Department of Justice Studies.
Questions can be directed to the HMIS Coordinator at (540) 908-0415
