Care for Chicago's Homeless:
Volunteer for the Chicago Point-in-Time Homeless Count
Thursday, January 26th, 2017
8 pm to 2 am – Citywide
The Point-In-Time Homeless Count is conducted every two years to provide the Chicago Department of Family and Support Services (DFSS) with a “snapshot” of Chicago’s homeless population. The data gathered on the actual number of homeless in Chicago serves as a basis for federal funding, for service and resource planning, and to raise public awareness about homelessness.
DFSS is presently conducting one hour-information sessions about volunteer opportunities for those interested in assisting us with this effort. If you are interested in volunteering, and have not previously volunteered for the Point-In-Time Homeless Count, you are encouraged to attend.
Registration to volunteer is now closed. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to the email alerts for the 2018 Homeless Count!
