Help count, survey county's homeless

The Homeless Leadership Board is seeking civic clubs, church groups and other volunteers to help conduct its annual Homeless Point in Time Count and Survey. On Jan. 24, the group will spread out across Pinellas County, gathering data on individuals and families who are living on the street, in cars, or in other places unfit for human habitation, and also trying to help them get into housing. The data are used to identify factors that lead to homelessness and to bring in federal dollars to help end it. Additional volunteers help pack and dispense supplies to counters, staff phone banks and more. The board needs at least 500 volunteers, who must be at least age 18 unless accompanied by a guardian. For more information or to sign up for a two- or three-hour shift, contact Susan Finlaw-Dusseault at susanf@pinellashomeless.org or (727) 528-5832, Debbie Infante at dinfante@pinellashomeless.org or (727) 528-5768, or Sarah Snyder at sarah@pinellas homeless.org or (727) 424-1355.
