2024.06 - Guilford County CoC HMIS Lead_CE Lead Report (June 2024 Data).jpg

Guilford County Housing By-Name List: The Housing By-Name List is used to organize and prioritize the list of clients who have been assessed based on their identified needs. A client’s spot on the list is based on a variety of factors, including being unsheltered, their length of time homeless, and any identified disabilities. List placement may change on a weekly or daily basis. Partners Ending Homelessness staff does not have the ability to control how someone's placement on the list may change.​


Rapid Rehousing (RRH) and Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH) programs are operated by multiple agencies in the Guilford County Continuum of Care. These agencies notify the Coordinated Entry Department of openings in their housing programs. Once notified of an opening, the agency that assessed the household will complete a referral packet so that the client can begin working with the housing program and enter their housing search. All referrals for these housing programs must come from the Housing By-Name List.

ASSESSMENTS: Assessments in our community are conducted using a tool called the Vulnerability Index - Service Prioritization Decision Assistance Tool (VI-SPDAT). The assessment tool is used for individuals, youth ages 18-24, and families. It requires a timeline for how long the household being assessed has been experiencing homelessness. The score/results of the assessment determine a client's spot on the Housing By-Name List. 


GUILFORD COUNTY POINT-IN-TIME COUNT: Partners Ending Homelessness assists in coordinating the annual Guilford County Point-In-Time Count in collaboration with the other member agencies of the Guilford County Continuum of Care. Point-In-Time Counts are conducted annually in January across the nation. These counts are designed to collect data on the number of individuals and families experiencing homelessness on any given night in each community. The information collected during the count provides a snapshot of unduplicated sheltered and unsheltered individuals and families experiencing homelessness throughout the county.

The data from the 2024 Point-In-Time Count is being finalized with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. The preliminary numbers are as follows:

  • Total Persons in Emergency Shelter: 376

  • Total Persons in Transitional Housing: 50

  • Total Persons in Safe Haven: 5

  • Total Unsheltered Persons: 234

  • Overall Total Persons (Sheltered & Unsheltered): 665

The data from prior Point-In-Time Counts is available here:
