The Point-in-Time Count is a one-day, statistically reliable, unduplicated count of sheltered and unsheltered homeless individuals and families across the United States.
The San Diego River Park Foundation we will be participating by conducting a point-in-time census of people living without shelter along the San Diego River. The count provides a snapshot of who is homeless on a given night. This information can be used to plan local homeless assistance systems, to tailor programs to meet existing needs, and to raise public awareness of homelessness.
Volunteers will work with in small teams to walk the along river and count unhoused individuals. Each team will have a leader and each team will walk an assigned River segment somewhere between the Estuary (next to Mission Bay) and Santee.
Only by knowing who, where, and how many people are experiencing homeless can we plan and identify the resources needed to best serve the most vulnerable, and ultimately move families and individuals into permanent housing. Join us to make a difference in the lives of homeless men, women, and children throughout San Diego by taking part in the homeless census.
