Health, Housing and Homeless Services Division Contra Costa Health Services is seeking volunteers to help with their annual Homeless Point in Time Count in late January. Volunteers will be trained on how to administer a short survey and then be stationed at specific community sites with other volunteers to conduct the surveys. This survey provides valuable information on the scope of homelessness, particularly around the number of unsheltered people on the streets and the progress being made to end homelessness. It is also used by local agencies to help plan services and programs appropriately, address strengths and gaps, increase public awareness, and attract resources to help end homelessness.
Volunteers are needed to help conduct surveys on Wednesday, January 24th and Thursday, January 25th. Volunteers who want to participate will need to attend a training the week of January 15th before being able to administer the survey, even if they've volunteered with the Point In Time count before. We will be in touch with volunteer training information as the event gets closer.
