Volunteers Still Needed for Homeless Count!

2.19.13 Homeless CountThis week, the Greater Los Angeles Homeless Count will be conducted. This countywide effort, led by Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority every two years, relies on over 5,000 volunteers, like you, to collect accurate information on L.A.’s current homeless population.  As the homeless capital of the United States, this count is especially critical for L.A., ensuring that resources are available and services are effectively reaching those most in need. Join us in working to end homelessness by signing up as a Count volunteer today!

Over 1,000 volunteers are still needed for this year’s count! Volunteers will give 3-5 hours of their time one (or more) nights to support the count. They will serve as counters, trainers, deployment center coordinators, and more. Volunteers can sign up as individuals, groups, or teams, selecting the day and site that works best for them.  Volunteers are still needed for the following service areas:

  • Tuesday, January 29, 2013 (8PM) – San Gabriel Valley, East/Southeast LA
  • Wednesday, January 30, 2013 (8PM) –  South Bay

Your COUNT will ensure they COUNT! So can we COUNT on you to volunteer this January?
