Thank you to all of our volunteers! 

Registration for the 2019 Point-In-Time Homeless Count is now closed.

 

The Point-In-Time Homeless Street and Shelter Count is an effort to learn more about the individuals and families experiencing homelessness in Maricopa County and the entire country.  In order to accomplish local and federal goals toward ending homelessness, we first need to know who is experiencing homelessness, where they are, and better
   

On the day of the count, an orientation will be hosted at 5:15 a.m.  Then, volunteers will be sent out to their project location by 5:30 a.m. to begin the Homeless Count.  Volunteers will be divided into groups of 3 to 4 people for each project location.  Volunteers will be interviewing and surveying individuals in their project location that are experiencing homelessness.  Volunteers must be able to provide their own transportation to assigned area. 

We are accepting donations of hygiene/care packages to be given out during the Point-In-Time Count.  We are aiming for gallon-sized bags to hand out, and we are open to what is donated!  To donate, please contact Emily Greco (contact information below).  Donations are needed by Tuesday, January 15, 2019.

Some suggestions to include in the care packages:

  • Socks
  • Chapstick
  • Combs
  • Kleenex
  • Bankd-Aids
  • Hand warmers
  • Waterless shampoo
