Volunteers Sought For Homeless Point In Time Count

Released December 21, 2023 09:14 AM
In January of each year, volunteers and public officials spread out in teams across Alpharetta and the rest of Fulton County to conduct the federally mandated Homeless Point In Time Count. The effort, spearheaded by Fulton County and the Fulton County Continuum of Care, attempts to secure a count of the community’s homeless population and gain important insights that are used to develop strategies for reducing homelessness and providing essential services for those living through homelessness.

This year, the Point in Time Count (PIT) will be conducted in the cities comprising North Fulton on January 23, and volunteers are currently being sought to assist with the effort. Volunteers will be trained before going into the field, and each team will be accompanied by a public safety officer and a professional staff member while conducting the count.

Those interested in volunteering for this year’s count can do so by visiting https://fulton.pointintime.info/

A volunteer training session is being held via Zoom on Thursday, January 18 from 11:30 AM to 1:00 PM for those interested in learning more about the PIT and volunteer activities.  To register and attend the forum, please visit  https://zoom.us/meeting/register/tJArcO6pqTgjG93LuGiGXCRQIRUpBF5BcPh5
