Local Volunteers Needed To Help Count The Homeless
January 9, 2017
Local volunteers are needed to help with a one-day homeless count and a homeless service day later this month.
The Point In Time Count will be held January 25. During the PIT count, volunteers will spread across Escambia and Santa Rosa Counties to designated places and interview those persons who are homeless (either in shelters or on the street or encampments).The PIT count provides a snapshot of the number of people who are experiencing homelessness on a single night in Escambia and Santa Rosa County and serves as an advocacy tool to assist these individuals in gaining access to community resources. Trainings will be provided. To volunteer, contact Diana Moore at Diana.Moore@ecoh.org or (850) 439-3009, extension 101.
The U-County Homeless Resource Day will be Thursday, January 26. U-Count Homeless Resource Day is a one-day, one-stop opportunity for individuals and families experiencing homelessness or at risk of homelessness to access services, resources and information. Volunteers are needed to help with registration, serving food, access entry points and escorts at the Salvation Army at 1501 North Q Street from 9 a.m. until 1:30 p.m. To volunteer, contact Serene Keiek at Serene.Keiek@ecoh.org or 439-3009, extension 108.
