Over a period of 24 hours, volunteers and staff talked to 205 people on the street. The point-in-time homeless count was conducted on April 18, 2016 by Community Partners Addressing Homelessness. Count coordinator Kerry Pateman has calculated the results; 90% said they want to get into long-term housing. The most commonly identified reason for homelessness was addiction or substance abuse. Many respondents first became homeless as a result of family breakdown or violence. 69% of respondents identified as having Aboriginal descent, 56% were male and 44% female. 5% said they previously served in the military or RCMP. 28% had moved to Prince George in the last year.
