This number represents the total number of people who fell into homelessness in Texas during the listed time period that have accessed services from state and federally-funded programs. It is important to note that this number underestimates the true rate of homelessness in Texas since not all households experiencing housing insecurity are eligible for assistance or feel comfortable with accessing services.
*In 2022, it was estimated that 92,955 individuals experienced homelessness in Texas.
The line graphs below show individuals and/or households, specifically those documented in a Homeless Management Information System (HMIS), who fell into homelessness in Texas during the year shown, as well as those who exited the homeless response system. In some cases, an individual may have fallen into homelessness on multiple occasions during the year.
This annual snapshot of individuals and/or households that enter and exit the homeless response system is especially critical, as the data can be used to identify trends and variations in homelessness rates throughout Texas. Furthermore, the data highlights the need for additional supportive services and community resources so that we can ensure all Texans have access to stable, affordable housing.
