Ty and Shy, who gave just their first names, said they’d each been homeless for years. This year's Point in Time Count has been pushed to February due to COVID concerns. 

WENATCHEE — A statewide survey of homeless populations has been pushed to February due to COVID concerns.

Point in Time Counts, conducted each January, are required by the state and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Douglas and Chelan counties have historically conducted a joint count and began a summer Point in Time Count in 2021 to better understand the homeless populations needs year round.
