January Homeless Count Needs Hundreds of Volunteers

Posted on January 7, 2023

The Mid-Willamette Valley Homeless Alliance is working to recruit 680 volunteers for Salem’s Point-in-Time Count. This annual nationwide census will be January 24, 25 and 28 this year. It will help our community gather information on the total number and key characteristics of individuals and households experiencing homelessness.

Over the three days, volunteers will go out to designated locations throughout the Marion-Polk region to conduct face-to-face interviews with thousands of people experiencing homelessness. Several locations will include PIT Count events so people can connect with local resources and services.

Recruitment for the Count is far short of its goal, so please sign up today.
