A one-stop, one-day community resources event
What is it?
The Stillwater PIT Stop is a one-day event during the winter that takes place in conjunction with the planned Washington County PIT Count. Each year, on one night in January, communities across the country conduct a Point-In-Time (PIT) count of all persons experiencing homelessness on that night. This nationwide effort helps communities, like Washington County, understand the extent of homelessness, measure progress in addressing it, and ensure that support and resources are directed where they are most needed.
The goal of the PIT Stop event is to serve those in need, especially those experiencing homeless. It provides a place to stop in, get a warm meal, a haircut and access to shower and laundry facilities, other personal care items and food, and learn about city and county services available. Valley Outreach supports this event every year and is happy to be part of this additional layer of service.
