The City of Pico Rivera has joined the 2013 Greater Los Angeles Homeless Count and the 100,000 Homes National Campaign, an effort to better understand the needs of our homeless community.
The City of Pico Rivera is partnering with Whittier First Day to take part in the Los Angeles County Homeless Authority's (LAHSA) 2013 Greater Los Angeles Homeless Count and the 100,000 Homes National Campaign's Count Plus Homeless Registry. The Homeless Count will take place on Tuesday, January 29, 2013 from 8:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m. and consists of a visual count of homeless individuals within the boundaries of Pico Rivera. The Homeless Registry will take place on Wednesday, January 30, 2013 to Thursday, January 31, 2013 from 8:00pm to 2:00am both days and consists of conducting the Vulnerability Index (VI) Survey on homeless individuals within the boundaries of the City. On each of the three nights of the Homeless Count & Registry volunteers will meet at the Pico Rivera Parks & Recreation Building's Community Room located at 6767 Passons Boulevard, Pico Rivera, CA 90660 at 8pm. The Homeless Count and Registry will collect important data used to provide stakeholders with a better understanding of the area's homeless community and possibly help obtain additional resources to our region.
