Properly counting our unsheltered homeless population is critically important to obtaining the state and federal funding needed to provide sufficient services.
Each year, the Department of Housing and Urban Development requires our community to count the number of people experiencing homelessness in our county. Data collected is critical to effective planning and performance management toward the goal of ending homelessness and helps to mobilize various efforts to address the needs of our homeless population. In addition, properly counting our unsheltered homeless population is critically important to obtaining the state funding needed to provide sufficient services.
The county is in need of volunteers to county the unsheltered homeless individuals in our county. If you are interested in helping with this effort, please visit Love Our Neighbors and register for a location that suits you. In order to complete your volunteer registration, you must a training seminar as well as the city you would like to volunteer in on January 23rd. Time requirements for the Point in Time Count vary by location. Several training opportunities are available. Volunteers may choose the time and location that works best.
