Help is sought for annual homeless count

Portland Housing Bureau is looking for volunteers to help with “One Night Shelter” counts – volunteers gather information about people sleeping in emergency shelters, motels, and transitional homes. Other volunteers will help with a street count, visiting areas around Multnomah County where people are sleeping outside, without shelter.

Volunteers can also help with data entry following the count.

The count is done Wednesday, January 30 – so CLICK HERE NOW to get signed up and start helping end homelessness

Trainings are on Tuesday, January 15, Thursday, January 17, Tuesday, January 22, and Wednesday, January 23.
