Volunteers Needed for Annual Homelessness Count
JAN. 26-27: Volunteers Needed for Annual Homelessness Count
Pierce County Human Services is preparing to conduct its annual “point-in-time” (PIT) count in January, which helps document how many people are experiencing homelessness on a given night.
For this year’s count, officials are looking for hundreds of volunteers to aid in counting and interviewing people living without shelter. Volunteers must be at least 18, agree to attend a training session and have access to a smartphone. Each member can choose to work a two or four-hour shift. The 2023 PIT count is scheduled to take place on Jan. 26 and 27. Virtual and in-person training sessions are scheduled several times in January.
