Homeless Count volunteer

Homeless Count

The count takes place throughout the city over a 24 hour period in March, inside shelters during the evening, and on the streets the next day. This involves conducting a brief anonymous survey with people who are homeless.

Although counts do not give us a full picture of the extent of homelessness, the counts provide critical information on the number and characteristics of the homeless population, and how this population has changed over time.
