The Simon Communities in Ireland described the numbers as "dismaying".
National spokesperson Wayne Stanley said social and affordable housing must be a focus of next week's Budget.
He argued: “These figures must be seen by Government as a call to action, or we are at risk of seeing another winter of increased levels of homelessness, the fourth since the launch of Rebuilding Ireland.
"The pace of building much-needed social and affordable homes is too slow and there is an over-reliance on a private rental sector that has long been struggling to cope with demand."
He added: "It’s vital that the Government now shows ambition and provides hope in Budget 2020 by taking meaningful action to address this."
