The latest figures show there are 9891 people in emergency accommodation.
Overall, the number of people accessing services increased by 19 when compared to June.
The Housing Minister, Eoghan Murphy, admitted: "any increase in the number of people accessing emergency accommodation is unacceptable".
He said that while the numbers needing the services remain a concern it "would be more challenging were it not for the huge efforts being put into prevention."
A motion of no confidence in the Housing Minister will be considered next week by Sinn Féin and there is speculation that Labour is also considering a similar motion.
How much longer will this go on?
