Event description

Description

Every January, homeless advocates across the nation seek to count homeless persons within their coverage areas. The Point in Time (PIT) Count greatly affects funding, both private and public, for homeless services and affects the methodology of those services. Metrocrest Services is the PIT Coordinator for our area. A thorough count is crucial in identifying and understanding both the progress we've made and the gaps within our services.

The Metrocrest Area has never been counted. We believe that this would be a unique opportunity for organizations, individuals, and ministries, to help identify homeless individuals and families. PIT Count Survey Volunteers will attempt to count individuals who are unsheltered. Some physical exertions may be required. If you have any concerns about the physical requirements, please email the Volunteer Manager. The count will be conducted January 24, 2019 from 7:00 pm to 11:00 pm. A one hour training session will occur at the Crosby Recreation Center from 7:00 p.m.-8:00 p.m. prior to the volunteer teams being dispatched to their assigned areas.

The PIT Count will be conducted regardless of the weather conditions; therefore volunteers should wear appropriate clothing and shoes.

After registering you will recieve an email in early January outlining the plan for January 24th , including training and other relevant information.
