Volunteers Needed for Point-in-Time

Volunteers are being sought for the semiannual Richland County Homeless Point-in-Time Count.

It's scheduled for the evening of Wednesday, July 27th from 11:00 PM to 2:00 AM. Volunteers are needed for the warming shelter, community walk-outs, and ride-alongs with local law enforcement.

The purpose of the count is to look for individuals and families experiencing homelessness in Richland County, provide outreach, and to collect demographic information that will help local officials better understand the scope of homelessness in Richland County. The information gathered helps to draw funding to this area for homelessness prevention and rehousing.

To volunteer for the Point-in-Time Count, or for more information, contact Cathryn Scott at (608) 647-8053. Again, 647-8053.
