Communities must better understand the challenges and needs of residents who are unsheltered. Communities and providers would greatly benefit from greater data accuracy and detail in order to better serve and advocate for those in need of safe, consistent, and secure homes in the region.

Current data collection efforts need to be continued and bolstered with proper funding and local collaboration. New methods should be evaluated to fill in known gaps in knowledge or populations of particular concern.
