Ohio Homelessness Reports

These reports are based on annual Point-In-Time Counts conducted one day in January of each year. They do not represent the total number of people who experience homelessness each year in Ohio. By way of comparison, a COHHIO review of Homeless Management Information System data, which tracks the number of individuals accessing homeless services throughout the state, determined that a approximately 65,000 Ohioans entered emergency shelters, transitional housing and permanent supportive housing during 2014.
