Help Count Unsheltered Homeless Persons

Every two years, Alameda County has the opportunity to affect the amount of money that comes to our county for homeless services by documenting the extent of homelessness in our county through a point-in-time count of unsheltered homeless persons.  This is a massive effort requiring hundreds of caring volunteers who are willing to donate 3-4 hours of their time, but the rewards are many.  Counts document the extent of the problem for funders, establish baseline data for historical purposes, and help us better understand the causes of homelessness so more effective responses can be developed.
