Count Us In

count us in

Count Us In is our community’s count of homeless and unstably housed young people ages 12-25. In 2015, 824 homeless young people were counted at more than 70 partner locations across King County; you can learn more about the 2015 count here. Count Us In data is collected through a one page survey completed by young people; one of our partners for this effort is the Seattle Public Library. Consider volunteering and help our community gain a better understanding of the experiences of homeless youth and young adults!

Volunteer opportunities are available at 7 different Seattle Public Library locations: Central, Capitol Hill, Broadview, Ballard, Columbia, Southwest and University. Volunteers should be available to attend a training prior to the count, either in person (preferred) or over the phone. In-person trainings will be held on Wednesday, January 13th from 11-12:30 at Street Youth Ministries (4540 15th Avenue NE, Seattle 98105) and on Thursday, January 14th from 3-4:30pm at the 2100 Building, Community Room B (2100 24th Avenue S., Seattle 98144).
