The City of Duarte, in partnership with the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority (LAHSA), is in need of volunteers for the 2022 Homeless Count on February 22, 2022.
The Homeless Count is conducted annually to measure changes in the homeless population. The final data determines how federal and local funding will be allocated to provide services to the homeless population throughout Los Angeles County. This information is also used to create or improve programs, deploy resources, and can help lead homeless individuals to permanent supportive housing.
The Duarte/Irwindale Count on February 22 will begin at 8 PM and will conclude at midnight on February 23. Volunteers will meet at the Duarte Senior Center (1610 E Huntington Dr) before going out in teams to conduct the count. All sites will follow public health and social distancing guidelines
Volunteers are encouraged to sign-up as teams of two or more to allow teams to stay in their Count Team bubble with people they are familiar with. If volunteers do not have teammates, individual sign-ups are still welcome.
