Point in Time 2019 - Volunteer Surveyor Sign-Up

Monday, January 28th from 4:15pm to Tuesday, January 29th, 2019 7:00pm

About

MDHI is recruiting volunteers to work alongside service providers to conduct interviews with our neighbors experiencing homelessness in emergency shelters, in parks and cars, along rivers, at service providers, libraries at magnet events held specifically for this count, and any other places where people spend time. Please join us!

  • Everyone Counts is the annual Point in Time Survey led by Metropolitan Denver Homeless Initiative (MDHI) across the seven-county metro Denver region. The Point in Time count generates a snapshot of homelessness on a single night, and raises public awareness, promotes collaboration across seven counties, provides needed data, helps us apply for increased housing funds, and reminds the community that Everyone Counts! 

A volunteer training is required and will help you learn how to administer the survey and give you time to practice with other staff and volunteers.

Review Volunteer Position Descriptions to learn more about each location type! And remember to confirm your registration.
