Participate in Census of the Homeless, Jan 30 2013

2013 District of Columbia "Point in Time" Homeless Census

A project of The Community Partnership for the Prevention of Homelessness and District of Columbia Continuum of Care

On Wednesday,  January 30,  2013,  the District of Columbia will conduct its annual census of homeless persons living on the street. From 9:30pm to 2:00am on the night the census, volunteer teams led by trained homeless outreach professionals will canvass the city for unsheltered,  homeless persons and conduct a brief survey about their experiences and circumstances. 


Volunteers throughout Washington, DC are needed to assist with a survey of homeless residents that will help determine the need for services and guide decisions about how to use available resources.

Results of the 2013 count and survey will provide benchmark numbers, which establish a basis for developing local community and regional strategies to help alleviate homelessness and measure the effectiveness of programs currently serving homeless individuals and families. Please consider participating in this event to learn how to love our neighbors better.



Register to volunteer HERE.
