We need volunteers for the state-wide Point-in-Time Count on July 25th!!
On Wednesday, July 25th , staff and volunteers from homeless shelters and community organizations will be conducting a count of homeless persons in Florence, Marinette, Menominee, Oconto, and Shawano Counties.
Start time is 12:00am (Wednesday July 25th night into Thursday July 26th)
If you would like to volunteer please contact Erin Evosevich NO LATER THAN July 16, 2018 to allow time to plan coordinately for the Point in time Count!
This is a really important activity, and often funding available for assisting persons who are homeless depends upon identifying the need in the community. That need is identified by the Point-in-Time count.
Anyone able to help should call Erin Evosevich at 800-242-7334 ext. 1109 or email firstname.lastname@example.org!
WHAT: A Point-In-Time count is a statistically reliable, unduplicated count of people experiencing homelessness during a designated one-night period. Wisconsin conducts this count twice per year (July and January.)
WHY: it is intended to capture a minimum amount of information on the homeless population in order to create a “snapshot” of what homelessness looks like in a neighborhood, city, or state. The data collected through the Point-in-Time process is reported in the Annual Homelessness Assessment Report (AHAR) that is provided to the U.S. Congress. Homeless information is also reported to the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development, and is utilized to develop the Housing Inventory Chart for the Balance of State Continuum of Care.
WHO: This count is intended to include persons that are homeless and are living in emergency shelters, transitional housing, safe havens for the homeless, domestic violence shelters, or who are unsheltered living on the streets or any other place not meant for human habitation.
