Volunteers needed for 2015 Santa Cruz County Homeless Census

Our homeless census team, homeless service providers and County staff are seeking volunteers to help on the 2015 Santa Cruz County Homeless Census that will be conducted on January 22, 2015 from approximately 6am to 10am. This census is scheduled every 2 years and is a requirement for federal HUD funding for local homeless services. The biennial homeless census helps us better understand the characteristics and needs of our homeless as well as the size of the population. This is especially critical this year with the renewal of our 10 year plan and our need to collect data to support it.

If interested, please click here to sign up as a volunteer. For those who would like more background on the Census and/or what you can expect, we have also included a volunteer orientationpresentation for you to review (click here to view the PDF). Any questions you may have please call 831.728.1356 and we will do our best to respond. Email queries can be directed to volunteer coordinator Hannah Bogen
