Clackamas County performs a Point in Time Count of people who are unsheltered every other year, as directed by Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Unsheltered is defined as sleeping outdoors, in camps, on the street, in vehicles, or in abandoned buildings or sheds. The most recent count was done in January 2019, which revealed an increase of 9% from 2017 for those experiencing homelessness. Oregon City had the highest number of homeless at 306 and Clackamas had the second highest number of homeless with 138; less than half of the number of those living in Oregon City.
