The 2016 Housing Instability & Homelessness Report Series is a collection of local reports designed to better equip our community to make data-informed decisions around housing instability and homelessness. Utilizing local data and research, these reports are designed to provide informative and actionable research to providers, funders, public officials and the media as well as the general population who might have an interest in this work.
Point-in-Time Count Report
This report provides an annual snapshot of the population experiencing homelessness in Mecklenburg County. This local report is similar to the national report on Point-in-Time Count numbers, and provides descriptive information about both the sheltered and unsheltered population experiencing homelessness on one night in January.
Affordable Housing Report
For the 2016 reporting cycle, the Housing Instability Report will focus on affordable housing, featuring innovative affordable housing strategies that other communities have implemented.
Family Homelessness Snapshot Report
For the 2016 reporting cycle, the Spotlight Report will focus on households with adults and children experiencing homelessness in Mecklenburg County. The report describes the impact of family homelessness on families and children and what it looks like Charlotte-Mecklenburg. It also outlines national best practice interventions and strategies to end and prevent family homelessness.

Cumulative Count Report
This report provides an annual count of the population experiencing sheltered homelessness over twelve months. Like the Point-in-Time Count Report, this local report is similar to the national report on annual counts of sheltered homelessness, providing descriptive information about the population experiencing sheltered homelessness throughout the year. The Point-in-Time Count and Cumulative Count Reports are complements, and together, help paint a picture of homelessness and trends in our community.
The 2016 reporting cycle is completed by the
University of North Carolina at Charlotte's Urban Institute. Mecklenburg County Community Support Services provided funding for the report series.
