Call for Volunteers for One Day Homeless Count
On Thursday, January 31, 2019, from 5 a.m. to 10 a.m., the San Mateo County Human Services Agency will conduct its biennial One Day Homeless Count. In collaboration with community partners, the San Mateo County Human Services Agency organizes a census and survey of people who are experiencing homelessness. Collecting strong data on the number, characteristics, and service needs of those experiencing homelessness in our community is a critical component for local planning and program development.
To collect this data, we will utilize over 350 volunteers during the early morning hours of January 31 to count individuals who are unsheltered in each census tract in the County. We’d really appreciate your support in volunteering and sharing this opportunity within your organization! It is particularly critical we have a broad base of volunteers who play a significant role in the census and survey to collect accurate data.
By signing up to volunteer you are committing to the following:
- Attend a 2-hour volunteer training. This training is mandatory for all volunteers. There are many dates/locations to choose from throughout the month of January and you will be able to choose your preferred training date/location in the volunteer registration process.
- Participate in the One Day Homeless Count on January 31, 2019 from 5 a.m. to 10 a.m.
