VOLUNTEER EVALUATION

Point-in-Time Count Volunteer Evaluation


VOLUNTEERS NEEDED FOR THE 2019 HOMELESS POINT IN TIME COUNT. The Point In Time Count is the annual count of individuals and families experiencing homelessness on a given day. The Santa Barbara County effort will take place on Thursday, January 24 from 5:00am-8:30am. Teams of volunteers and experts will canvas assigned routes throughout the county and will briefly document who is experiencing homeless. This information can be used to plan local homeless assistance systems and raise public awareness. Volunteer trainings will be held in January. Join us today. Change doesn’t happen without you.

You can also help by donating: Amenities (soap, shampoo, lotion, toothbrushes, toothpaste and disposable razors), soft cereal bars, bottled water, rain ponchos, beanies, gloves, $5 food gift cards, bus passes or tokens.
