Calling all volunteers to help in the 2018 Los Angeles Homeless Count. This is an annual census that gathers data on how many of our neighbors are experiencing homelessness in our communities. Upwards of 8,000 volunteers are needed, so any help is appreciated. The count will be January 23rd, 2018 at 8:00 pm. Visit http://www.theycountwillyou.org/ for more information on how you can sign up lend a hand to our homeless neighbors across Los Angeles.
Why We Count
Our solutions are only as good as our information. The more informed we are allows us to understand and solve issues at a greater rate. The Greater Los Angeles Homeless Count is where we gather as much information as possible of those experiencing homelessness so that we can make informed decisions and creative solutions. It enables us to gather important data that is key for us to bring about an end to homelessness in Los Angeles.
Through the Greater Los Angeles Homeless Count, we will:
- Inform the state of homelessness in LA
- Bring vital community resources
- Increase engagement bringing together leaders, residents and stakeholders
