Let's Make Everyone Count!

We need volunteers for the 2015 Point-in-Time count of Contra Costa County's homeless community, from Wednesday, January 28 to Friday, January 30.


Data from this survey helps us to more effectively serve county residents in great need of assistance. The count also serves as our kickoff event for Zero 2016, a national effort to end chronic and veteran homelessness over the next two years.

Volunteers will work 4-hour shifts, interviewing consumers at locations such as food distribution sites, healthcare facilities and soup kitchens, and must also attend a 2-hour training session, either 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 25 or from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 26.

Your assignment will be based on your availability and location.

The Contra Costa County Homeless Program's mission is to ensure an integrated system of care, from prevention through intervention, for homeless individuals and families within our community. We strive to accomplish this through the development of policies and practices, community involvement, advocacy, and the coordination of services that respect human dignity, strengthen partnerships, and maximize resources.
