Street Count 2014
Help make sure every homeless person on the streets of Tucson is counted, in order to secure services and resources for them. There are several ways you can help with the Jan. 24, 2014 count by the Tucson Pima Collaboration to End Homelessness.
- Volunteer – Meet community members experiencing homelessness and help ensure that everyone who does not have a stable home is counted.
- Lead a team – Help lead the volunteers. This position is for people with knowledge of serving the homeless.
- Donate – Consider donating money to support the Street Count, which depends entirely on community contributions.
All volunteers must attend a brief training session to prepare for the Street Count. That session is scheduled for Jan. 20, 2014, 5:30 p.m. – 7 p.m.
For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or call (520) 323-1708 ext. 112.
