Homelessness

The Missouri Balance of State (BoS) CoC conducts a Point-in-Time Count throughout its 101 county geographic area each year as required by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The count helps Missourians monitor trends in the homeless population and increases public awareness of homelessness. The unsheltered Point in Time Count was not conducted nationally in 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
