The purpose of the Point in Time Count is to collect data on the needs of people experiencing homelessness in our community. The count also provides an excellent opportunity to increase awareness of homelessness and to spark action. A successful and accurate count is an essential component to informing our regional response and to ultimately make homelessness rare, brief, and a one-time occurrence.
Your health and safety, as well as the safety of people experiencing homelessness, is our priority. Volunteers are required to follow state and county public health guidelines when conducting the PIT Count, including social distancing when possible and wearing a mask at all times. Trainings prior to the Count will be held online, and singular household groups can sign up together to minimize risks.
Volunteers are required to self-monitor for signs and symptoms of COVID-19 prior to the Point-In-Time Count, agree to not participate if they have COVID-19 related symptoms (i.e. fever, coughing, shortness of breath, etc.), and to notify the Continuum of Care if volunteers experience symptoms within 14 days after conducting the Point-in-Time Count.
Thank you for volunteering!
