VOLUNTEERS SOUGHT FOR 2019 “HOMELESS POINT IN TIME” COUNT
Updated: Jan 11, 2019
WORKERS NEEDED TO HELP COUNT INDIVIDUALS AND FAMILIES WHO ARE HOMELESS
OFFICIAL PIT (Point In Time) Count Date: January 23, 2019
This annual count helps member agencies of the Amador County Homeless Task Force and member agencies of Tuolumne County to strategically address the housing and service needs of individuals and families who are homeless or at risk for homelessness. The process helps to ensure annual funding to our community that provides crucial housing and supportive services for this vulnerable population, benefiting the community. The numbers collected drastically affect the amount of funding provided.
To make the PIT Count as accurate as possible, teams will span out across each County, to count and survey homeless who sleep outdoors, in parks, alleys, under bridges, or in places not meant for human habitation, such as cars, abandoned buildings, garages or other structures without electricity or running water.
The process of surveying helps to identify local trends among the homeless population such as families with children, unaccompanied youth, the chronically homeless, and veterans; and helps identify the magnitude of challenges such as drug use or mental/physical health issues.
Each PIT worker (18 & over) is asked to attend a training session.
