Seeking Community Volunteers for Point in Time County Surveying
Each year, around the state, counties survey
as many individuals experiencing homelessness as possible during a 24-hour
period. This is called the, "Point In Time Count." Information from
this count provides local, state, and federal decision-makers with information
about the demographics and scope of homelessness. The Housing and
Homelessness Program is seeking volunteers to assist with the Point In Time
Count on January 25-26, 2017. A small time commitment by volunteers over
these two days makes a huge difference in our county's ability to get accurate
for more information.
