Get Involved... Volunteer
SIGN UP TODAY TO BE A PART OF THE 2017 “POINT IN TIME HOMELESS COUNT & SURVEY”!
Everyone counts in Orange County, whether they have a home or not. We need to know the number and characteristics of people in need, so we can plan and fund appropriate programs to help them gain self-sufficiency. To implement our Ten Year Plan to End Homelessness, we need a baseline against which we will measure our success. And, to preserve critical, existing funding for homeless services, HUD requires need an updated count of homeless residents.
We need an estimated 1500 volunteers to help with this effort. No special skills necessary!
