Housing and Vulnerability Survey

The Continuum of Care gathers additional homeless data in our region during the Point in Time Count by administering the Housing and Vulnerability Survey to homeless persons who agree to talk about their experiences.

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.
