The Point In Time (PIT) Homeless Count conducted by The Atlanta Continuum of Care is crucial for tracking the success of local efforts to end homelessness in Atlanta and for planning future efforts.
The PIT Count gives the City and its partner agencies valuable information on the homeless population that makes it possible to strategically target resources for optimal results. We will be surveying the unsheltered homeless who are sleeping in outdoor locations such as sidewalks, parks, encampments and under bridges. The surveys will provide demographic information on each homeless individual, give insight to their homeless history, and assess individual needs that will enable the Continuum to effectively plan housing and service interventions to prevent and end homelessness in Atlanta
We will need 300 volunteers to conduct surveys.
In addition to general volunteers, we will need help from our dedicated homeless service providers to serve as Team Leaders.
