Wednesday, January 30 Thursday, January 31 is the annual Point in Time survey, and Georgetown Ministry Center needs volunteers to help! Do you know where a homeless person sleeps at night? Are you willing to canvass the streets with us on the 30th 31st? If so, please read on!
What is the Point in Time?
The Point In Time survey is a coordinated, annual count of individuals and families in the region who are homeless. This year, the count for unsheltered individuals will be conducted on
Wednesday, January 30 Thursday, January 31, 2013, between 9:30pm and 2am.
Why is this survey done?
The information will be used to help determine the need for supportive services in the District. It will also help the District learn how homeless assistance organizations can better assist their clients.
What can I do to help?
There are two ways to help:
- If you know where a homeless individuals camps out at night, please let GMC staff know so that we can reach out to that person during the PIT survey. This will help us minimize the time we will have to spend walking around at night.
- Come by Georgetown Ministry Center at 9:30pm on
Wednesday, January 30Thursday, January 31 to help GMC staff canvass the streets. If possible, please let us know that you plan on volunteering that night so we can plan out teams. (Email Stephanie at email@example.com or call 202-338-8301.)
