#2. A person who had been homeless at some point in his life had shared some useful tips.

The measure that is used to get a count of homeless people in the Us is the HUD’s PIT count. It is said that it doesn’t show the exact number of people who don’t have a house to stay in one night in the month of January. It is pointed out by the National Coalition for Homeless that people who had recently lost their homes. Those who are staying in supportive houses are not included in the PIT count. The Bloomberg CityLab says that this population had been added up to 503,473 in 2017. Therefore, the count of people who doesn’t have homes had increased more than 1M people.

The PIT count is taken in the month of January and due to the cold weather in the month people somehow find some shelter, so the results in the count are suppressed. Also, it doesn’t count the people who are on the threat of losing their homes and the ones who are staying in maybe friends or relatives’ houses.
