SUMMARY

 

The data contained in the 2022 Point-in-Time Count (PIT) is an essential tool to understanding the scope, trends, and causes of homelessness in our community and throughout the region. The data is the result of a coordinated regional effort that includes every jurisdiction in Alameda County. This report summarizes the findings of the 2022 Point-in-Time Count and Survey of homeless persons in Alameda County and Hayward that was conducted and led by EveryOne Home in January 2022 (Attachment II and Attachment III, respectively).

 

Council has long identified homelessness and housing affordability as key issues in the community and has supported local efforts to address these issues in conjunction with the larger regional efforts. In the past several years, the City has taken several aggressive local measures to address this growing humanitarian crisis. This report contains updates on these initiatives, including the year one report out on Let’s House Hayward! Homelessness reduction strategic plan, the two- and half-year progress report on the Hayward Housing Navigation Center and Hotel Annex, and the City’s ongoing partnership with Alameda County.
