Citygate Network conducts an annual Snapshot Survey during the first quarter of each year. This single day, point-in-time survey compiles data from thousands of individuals utilizing emergency shelter, supportive services, or addiction recovery programs from our member missions and ministries. These statistics have been tracked for many years and are available for review, containing data from the previous three years in a year-over-year comparison on our website.
The data collected through the Snapshot Survey provides local and national media with a demographic snapshot of homelessness and poverty in communities across North America and is one of the most requested and used pieces of information we provide.

Keep in mind, the information on this document is from a portion of our membership and represents a single day's report. The final number of people cared for by Citygate Network members is exponentially larger when multiplied by 365 days and our full membership.
