“We’re looking for volunteers to help us with Point-In-Time, an annual counting of homeless within the community,” stated Supv. Chuck Washington, 3rd District.

The Point-In-Time census will be held Jan. 27, 2017, throughout Riverside County.

“This count is used by the Department of Housing and Urban Development not only as a measure of the homeless population, but also as a basis to determine many of the resources and funding the county receives from HUD and other federal funding sources to address homelessness in Riverside County,” Washington added.

Volunteers must register in advance and complete a mandatory 90-minute training session. Sessions will be held in December and January prior to the count. Register at www.surveymonkey.com/r/DTVBGR2.
