The count is held every two years and takes approximately four days to accomplish.  The Venice count was administered by Timothy Sweeney of the Venice Community Housing Corporation (VCHC).

All volunteers were trained prior to going out Wednesday night.  Volunteers were then put in groups and each group was given a particular area to count the homeless.  All wore “volunteer” t-shirts for identification.

The count is used by LAHSA to obtain Federal funding for homeless programs in Los Angeles County.
