Homeward

2018 Summer Point-in-Time Count

Have you ever wondered how Homeward gets the data that supports our work?

You can be a part of that effort this July 19 & 20 by volunteering at our 2018 summer Point-in-Time (PIT) count. The PIT count is a census of people that are experiencing homelessness in our region. 

We have over 170 volunteer slots available:

  • 96 volunteers to survey the residents of emergency shelters on the evening of 7/19
  • 10 volunteers to First Baptist Church community dinner on the evening of 7/19
  • 50 volunteers to survey the guests of the community lunch at Grace & Holy Trinity Episcopal Church on 7/20
  • 19 volunteers to survey panhandlers in Richmond, Chesterfield, and Henrico on the afternoon of 7/20

By administering the survey, volunteers will meet their neighbors experiencing homelessness, come to understand their circumstances, and help support the network of services that can help them overcome their crisis.


The information that we gather will help inform the network of services that will help our neighbors get off the streets and out of shelters and into stable housing. We have many community leaders across sectors signed up to help lead teams across the region, but we still need your help.

Questions? Email [email protected]

All volunteers must register for and attend one of the mandatory volunteer trainings listed on this site.

We ask that volunteers bring smart phones or tablets to allow us to conduct the survey electronically. All volunteers must be 18+.

All volunteers must read and agree to the Release and Assumption of Risk Agreement for Volunteers Assisting Homeward (Please see link below).
