Sign up and help make a difference on January 26, 2019.
One of the best civic volunteer opportunities of the year is approaching on January 26, 2019 and will let you make a difference in the lives of hundreds of Austinites experiencing homelessness.
The Point in Time (PIT) Count is conducted one night each year so individuals experiencing homelessness in Austin can be counted. This information helps update local policymaking and documents the need for federal Housing and Urban Development funding in support of programs and services for these individuals.
It takes more than 600 volunteers throughout the city to make this happen, and no experience is necessary. Everyone receives a thorough orientation, and always works in teams in specifically assigned areas of the city. If you have participated before, you know that it can be a meaningful group activity. If you haven’t, you are encouraged to volunteer.
