Houselessness in South Dakota
According to the preliminary 2022 Annual Point-in-Time Count, South Dakota is seeing a 30% increase in homelessness. This number ONLY consists of those deemed literally homeless, defined as living on the streets, in camps or in their cars, and does NOT account for those who are doubled-up or rotating across households as a short-term solution. The rise in the number of un-housed community members can be attributed to: Inflation & rising expenses, limited housing inventory, challenges to the capacity of homeless providers.
