The 2014 Point in Time survey is scheduled for Wednesday, January 29, 2014, and we need volunteers! The Point in Time (PIT) is an annual, nationwide count of unsheltered homeless individuals that takes place every January. We need volunteers to help us walk around the neighborhood, count, and survey unsheltered individuals.
Volunteers will be split into teams and led by a team leader and should dress warmly and bring a flashlight if they have one. If you can help the night of the PIT, please let us know!
Here is our schedule for the night:
7:30-8:00pm — Volunteers arrive at Georgetown Ministry Center. We are located at 1041 Wisconsin Avenue in the alley next to Grace Church. Due to construction at one end of the alley, all access to our center is via the alley entrance on 31st Street next to the Capella Hotel. Here is a map for reference. If you get lost, please call the front desk at 202-338-3801 for help.
8:00-8:30pm — Volunteer training will start promptly at 8:00pm.
8:30-9:00pm — A few minutes of practicing administering the survey, followed by breaking up into teams, map distribution, etc.
9:00pm-2:00am — Teams are dispatched. Teams are usually done by 11:30 or midnight and report back to GMC once they are done. The official count goes until 2am, but we’re usually not out past midnight.
