Have you ever wondered how Homeward gets the data that supports our work?
You can be a part of that effort this January 23 & 24 by volunteering at our 2019 Winter Point-in-Time (PIT) count. The PIT count is a census of people that are experiencing homelessness in our region.
We have over 200 volunteer slots available:
- Over 100 volunteers to survey the residents of emergency shelters on the evening of 1/23
- 15 volunteers to First Baptist Church community dinner on the evening of 1/24
- 70 Volunteers will participate in the First Baptist Church Service Fair
- 19 volunteers to survey for day outreach on 1/24
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.

All volunteer trainings will be done through Webinar
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).
