The Stanislaus Community System of Care (CSOC) is looking for volunteers to conduct the 2022 Homeless Point-In-Time Count, a one-day snapshot of homelessness in each community of Stanislaus County. The count data is critical to determine the scope of the problem, help define resources, and identify gaps in service.
"Homelessness affects all of us," stated Jason Conway, Chair of CSOC. "The data collected will help get a better understanding of the population experiencing homelessness."
Each year the U.S. department of Housing and Urban Development requires communities to count the number of people homeless in counties across the nation. This is a count of sheltered and unsheltered people on a single night in January.
Next year's count is scheduled for Thursday, January 27, 2022.
Volunteers will work with the County's Homeless Outreach and Engagement Team as they fan out across Stanislaus County. You'll engage with local homeless individuals and their families to complete a survey and help distribute care packages (beanie, socks, snack, and water) to people you survey.
To volunteer, please go to http://stanislaus.pointintime.info. You'll be required to choose a mandatory survey/safety training and select the city where you'd like to conduct surveys.
You can also register via phone at (209) 558-2961 or e-mail moc.ytnuocnats@cosc
The goal is to register 250 volunteers. The deadline is January 7, 2022.
A total of 2,927 persons were identified in the 2021 PIT count.
Let's Make Everyone Count!
