|You can make an impact in the lives of homeless men, women and children by volunteering for the 2013 Greater Los Angeles Homeless Count. Volunteers are needed throughout Los Angeles County from January 29-31. By knowing who and where homeless people are in Los Angeles County, government agencies and service providers are better able to plan and identify resources to move individuals and families into permanent housing.
Volunteers will gather at deployment sites in their own communities across Greater Los Angeles to receive training and then go out in teams by car or on foot to visually count the number of homeless persons living in a specified area.
Please sign-up for one of the following dates at http://volunteer.theycountwillyou.org/:
Tuesday, January 29, 2013 at 8pm- San Gabriel Valley, East LA County
Wednesday, January 30, 2013 at 8pm- West Los Angeles, South Bay
*Thursday, January 31, 2013 at 8pm- Metro Los Angeles, South Los Angeles (Metro and South LA are the closest counts to USC), San Fernando Valley/Santa Clarita Valley
