Fairfax County, in coordination with the surrounding Washington, D.C. Metropolitan area, conducted its 2022 Point-In-Time Count of individuals and families experiencing homelessness on January 26, 2022. This highly coordinated effort provides critical data on the numbers of Fairfax County residents living in shelters, in time-limited transitional housing programs as well as those unsheltered and living on the street in the Fairfax-Falls Church community. There were 1,191 people experiencing homelessness in Fairfax County on the night of the 2022 Point-in-Time Count. This is a decrease of 3 percent (31 people) from the 2021 Point-in-Time Count, in which there were 1,222 people identified as experiencing homelessness.
