From Contra Costa Health, Housing and Homeless Services:
We're gearing up for our annual homeless Point in Time Count for late January and we are seeking volunteers to help us conduct this very important project!
Each year in late January, Contra Costa's homeless Continuum of Care (CoC), conducts a federally required comprehensive Point-In-Time (PIT) count of families and individuals experiencing homelessness in our County. Every CoC in the Country is required to do this survey and the data used by the federal, state and local government to determine funding resources for homeless services.
We gather data in a number of ways including trained volunteers who will conduct the short survey at service and community sites throughout the Contra Costa. Volunteer trainings will take place the week of January 21st and the actual count will take place the week of January 28th.
