Point in Time



 

 Help us End Homelessness!

Join 211 OC for this exciting opportunity to quantify and help end homelessness in Orange County! The Point in Time (PIT) count is a biannual tally of people without a home on a particular night. The next PIT occurs on January 24th, 2015. The results of the count shape the county’s approach to ending homelessness.

 

Why We Count

We count because we want to understand homelessness in our community in order to end it. This “Point-In-Time” count provides vital information that guides and shapes the way we approach and solve homelessness in Orange County.

 

Volunteers Needed!

We need an estimated 1,500 volunteers to help by counting and working as deployment site staff during the count and survey on the morning of January 24th, 2015. The count and survey will occur on the streets throughout the entire county.

 

Field Teams: Identify and count homeless in predetermined mapped areas.  

Field Surveyors: Getting to know the homeless by administrating a short survey. 

Support Crew: Helping those working in the field at Deployment Centers.

 

Prior to the count, every volunteer will have to participate in approximately 3 hours of training. There will be a variety of days and times these trainings will be offered in the months leading up to the count. We are also happy to schedule trainings for corporate groups at their offices (within Orange County) or to host trainings at 211 OC’s office in Santa Ana.
