Volunteers are needed for ‘Count Us In 2018,’ the annual Point in Time Count of people experiencing homelessness which will be held on Friday, Jan. 26.

Volunteers will be asked to work in teams of 2-3 to conduct a visual count of individuals experiencing homelessness across King County early that morning:

  • 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: [email protected] or (206) 263-1375.
