Count Us In 2018 will take place on Friday, January 26th !
The core purpose of our annual Point in Time (PIT) Count is to collect data on the needs of people experiencing homelessness in our community. The count also provides an excellent opportunity to increase awareness of homelessness and to spark action. A successful and accurate PIT Count is an essential component to informing our system response to the need in our community and to ultimately making homelessness rare, brief and one-time.
For questions about the PIT count, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are now accepting volunteers for Count Us In 2018.
Volunteers will be asked to work in teams of 2-3 to conduct a visual count of individuals experiencing homelessness across King County. Teams are comprised of community volunteers and expert guides (individuals currently/previously experiencing homelessness), who will walk/drive all over their assigned routes beginning in the early morning hours (specific times to be determined). Volunteers are expected to have a cell phone, and to walk approximately 2-3 miles if necessary. Volunteers with cars will be asked to help transport their team members on the day of the count.
To sign up to participate as a volunteer, please fill out this short survey. Please note that expert guides will be recruited separately through a different process. If you have been recruited as a guide, do not complete this form. Please contact Jean-Paul Yafali with any questions at: JYafali@kingcounty.gov or (206) 263-1375.
