NJ Counts 2014, New Jersey's annual Point-In-Time (PIT) Count of the homeless, provides a statewide snapshot of homeless households in our communities; where they find shelter, what their needs are, and what factors contribute to making them homeless. The 2014 Count reveals important demographic and other information about families and individuals who were homeless on the night of Tuesday, January 28th, 2014, and was carried out with the help of government agencies, community-based organizations, and local volunteers.

Individuals walking the streets homeless. People just days shy of paying their rent. Those who have no food money left after paying their bills. These are the people whom the United Way of Hudson County assist each week after receiving donations from businesses, employees, and county residents. While United Way is a multi-service agency, United Ways across the country do not provide the same programs, instead catering specifically to the areas they serve, according to President Dan Altilio of United Way of Hudson County, 857 Bergen Ave., Jersey City.
