The 2019 EveryOne Counts!, the biennial point-in-time count for Alameda County, found a total of 8,022 people experiencing homelessness countywide, including 1,710 sheltered and 6,312 unsheltered. This represents a dramatic overall increase of 43 percent compared to the last count in 2017, according to data reported by independent research company, ASR, and released May 16 by EveryOne Home. The full county report will be completed by the end of July and will include detailed information including jurisdictional and demographic breakdowns. The report will also contain an analysis of the survey responses of people experiencing homelessness. City reports for Oakland, Berkeley, Fremont, and Hayward will be available at the end of August.

The topline, countywide numbers confirm the analysis of the EveryOne Home Plan to End Homelessness: Strategic Update 2018, that for every two people becoming homeless in Alameda County, only one returns to housing, and that the rate at which people are becoming homeless outpaces the ability to house them with existing resources.
