The census is a point-in-time count performed to assess the number of homeless living in the region. An accurate count allows funders and service providers to determine the types and level of services needed.

Volunteers will travel into our census tracts and perform a visual count of our homeless population. Volunteers with cars and flashlights are needed. Training will be provided just prior to volunteering.

There are two volunteer duties: 1) Drivers (must have a car), who will drive around the census tract with a partner volunteer to gain accurate counts and 2) Walkers, who will walk in pairs through the census tract and perform a visual count.

Youth ages 14-17 may volunteer if accompanied by an adult.
