Guam Homeless Coalition seeking volunteers for 2018 PIT count

1634

The Guam Homeless Coalition is looking for volunteers to assist in the annual Homeless count set for January 26, 2018.
Guam – Each year, volunteers canvas the island to count people who appear to be living in places not meant for dwelling. These volunteers serve as enumerators, for the annual Point in Time or P-I-T homeless count.

The data from the PIT count provides a reliable snapshot of homeless persons and helps service providers better understand trends in homelessness.

Volunteer enumerators will administer a questionnaire about an individual’s background and needs. The aim is to recruit 250 volunteers for the 2018 count. Volunteers must be 18 years of age and attend a mandatory 1-day training.

For more information or to volunteer contact John Blas at 989-0234 extension 105 or Christina Cruz at 989-0234 extension 106.
