Homeless Count is a fantastic way to get involved as a volunteer in local efforts to end homelessness. Volunteers will have an opportunity to connect with people and deepen their own understanding of the experience of homelessness, while at the same time contributing to a huge community effort on count day.
We are committed to ensuring your volunteer experience with us is a positive and fulfilling one. Homeward Trust provides training for all count volunteers, as well as contacts and support to address any questions or concerns. The safety and comfort of our volunteers is extremely important to us as we conduct the count.
The Homeless Count is conducted using a short electronic survey designed to gather basic demographic information from people experiencing homelessness. This means that we need a team of volunteers to help survey people in different locations around the city.
Please contact Janine – email@example.com if you have questions about volunteering.
All volunteers are required to attend a training session.
Whether this is your first time volunteering with us, or you volunteered many times, attendance of a training session is very important to ensure a safe, positive experience during the count. There will be multiple sessions available to accommodate as many people as possible.
To ensure that all volunteers are prepared in advance, training sessions will include information about what to expect during your shift, as well as an opportunity to ask questions and test the survey app.
Volunteer training session dates will be posted shortly.
Your contribution is important – the count cannot happen without the support of hundreds of volunteers. Volunteer registration for the 2018 Homeless Count will open soon.
