At least 180 people sleeping rough around Adelaide have found housing in the past 14 months, but more than 380 have become homeless over the same period.

The latest data will be revealed at a homelessness conference hosted by the Don Dunstan Foundation on Wednesday.

Foundation executive director David Pearson said the number of rough sleepers was tracked each month as part of the Adelaide Zero project and had reached 226 on any given night.
