The 2013 Count will take during the week of January 28 - February 1 and serve two purposes:
(1) as the City's biennial homeless census required of jurisdictions receiving federal funding dedicated for homeless services programs, and
(2) as the City's first-ever "75 Journeys Home Campaign," which is a local initiative of the national 100,000 Homes Campaign (http://100khomes.org).
The 75 Journeys Home Campaign is a community-wide effort to identify the City's most vulnerable residents and connect the 75 most vulnerable residents with housing and supportive services. We need volunteers to:
(1) Administer surveys outdoors from 4 - 6 a.m. on Mon. 1/28, Tues. 1/29, and Wed. 1/30. (Volunteers must commit to all 3 days.) Note: Outdoor survey volunteers must be able to walk a mile unassisted.
(2) Administer surveys at drop-in centers from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. or 5 p.m. - 8 p.m. on Monday January 28. (Volunteers may commit to 1 shift or both shifts.)
All volunteers will be required to sign a liability waiver and confidentiality agreement. Volunteers will be required to attend a 1.5 hour training session prior to the event. All trainings will be held at Our Daily Bread Employment Center at 725 Fallsway. An e-mail reminder will be sent to all volunteers prior to the training.
