DO NOT USE 2013 Homeless Count and Survey TrainingThe 2013 Homeless Count and Survey will be taking place on Thursday and Friday, January 24 and 25, 2013. In order to volunteer for the Survey, volunteers must attend one of these training sessions. You'll sign up for a survey shift and location at the session.
Every year our community is charged with counting every person experiencing homelessness in Broward County and asking them to complete a survey. The count is used for all Federal and State grants and an accurate count helps Broward get needed resources to help persons end their homelessness. Additionally, the survey is used to provide up-to-date information about the needs of the homeless population so that we can provide appropriate services.
All volunteers should have a concern and compassion for people experiencing homeless and a desire to help. Some volunteers may assist sheltered homeless persons in completing the survey and others will assist with surveying unsheltered homeless persons. Those working with the unsheltered homeless should have transportation and be comfortable dealing with people currently living on the streets. Volunteers must be 18 and over.
