Homeless Census Volunteers Needed

12/31/2015

The Kern County Homeless Collaborative announces the kickoff of the annual Homelessness Census, (aka the Point-in-Time Count). The 2016 Homelessness Census of Sheltered and Unsheltered Homeless Persons will take place throughout Kern County during a 24-hour period Wednesday, January 27 through Thursday, January 28.

You will be sent all the information about training and other details. THANK YOU FOR CARING ABOUT PEOPLE WHO ARE HOMELESS!

CENSUS WORKERS ARE THE KEY TO ENDING HOMELESSNESS!
The help of approximately 250 volunteers/workers are needed. (Must be 18th years or older, and training will be required.)

  • January 27, for the Sheltered Homeless Count, help is needed to count people who are homeless and who will be staying in shelters.
  • January 28, for the Unsheltered Count, teams of workers (who we group into three or four people) span out throughout Kern all day long to count people who are homeless who sleep outdoors, in parks, alleys, by the river, under bridges, etc. or in places not meant for human habitation--cars, abandoned buildings, garages or other structures without electricity or running water.

The participation of new volunteers from the community are eagerly encouraged and welcome! Those experienced with the Homelessness Census are especially needed. Most of all RURAL volunteers are so important! You are the experts of your community and know it well. Rural homelessness is up - you can be the conduit for change!
