Help us with our Point-in-Time Survey
Georgetown MInistry Center is coordinating the annual The Point-in-Time survey in the Georgetown area. This is part of a nationwide effort to understand the expanse of homelessness in the U.S. This year, the count for unsheltered individuals will be conducted on Wednesday, January 25, between 9:30pm and 2am.
OK, maybe you don’t want to come out on Wednesday night. We know it will be cold but you can still help. Do you know of a homeless person who has been spending the night in Georgetown? Let us know. We will try to find him or her the night of the Point In Time Survey. We want to count everyone.
But if you are interested, join GMC staff and volunteers in canvassing the Georgetown area for homeless individuals. The aim is to collect a count of how many people are on the street in our area, completing a questionnaire for each person we meet on the street.
Want to participate? Call or email (202)338-8301 ask for Roy or Gunther or email email@example.com. Then come to GMC on Wednesday, January 25, between 9 and 9:30 pm. We are located at 1041 Wisconsin Ave NW (map and directions here). Dress warmly and bring a flashlight, if you have one. You can also use these contacts to alert us to people we should be looking out for.
Why do we gather this information? The information will be used to help determine the need for supportive services in the District. It will also help us learn how homeless assistance organizations can better assist people on the street.
