ABOUT THE POINT-IN-TIME COUNT
VOLUNTEERS NEEDED FOR THE 2020 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 Wednesday, January 29 from 5:30am-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.
If you missed the inperson training you can complete the Online Point-In-Time Count Training. Please also register as a volunteer and sign Release of Liability & Confidentiality Agreement prior to January 29, 2020.

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. All of these supplies will be distributed during the Santa Barbara Count Point-in-Time Count or during year-round Coordinated Outreach.
