Volunteers Needed for Venice Homeless Count

Volunteers are needed for the Venice Homeless Count, 30 January, 8 to midnight.
The four hours include one hour of training, which includes getting supplies, shirts, and hats, approximately two hours of counting and the last hour to return and check out.  Approximately 75 to 100 are needed.
This year the Venice Community Housing Corporation (VCHC) is organizing a complete count for Venice so that, according to Timothy Sweeney, director for VCHC count, “we’ll be able to get real, current data on the homeless population in our community.  This ensures us that our services reflect the true needs of the most vulnerable among us.”
The Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority (LAHSA) coordinates a county-wide homeless count every two years but LASHA does not release detailed numbers for specific areas such as Venice.    If you want to volunteer:      Go to www.theycountwillyou.org
