The more we know about our homeless population, the better we can serve their needs. This Point-in-Time Count is not only a chance to learn how many people are homeless and where they are located, but also information about how they became homeless and what services they need to help them.
Depending on where you are counting, the local coordinator will probably have a central meeting place where volunteers can review their duties and responsibilities prior to going out to conduct the count. From there, volunteers will go out in teams with an experienced leader into designated areas to count and survey the homeless living in that area.
If you have any additional questions about the count or would like to volunteer, contact the Customer Contact Center at 757-382-2489 (CITY).
The Counts are organized by the Southeastern Virginia Homeless Coalition and the City of Chesapeake's Division of Community Programs.
