Sponsored by the Baltimore Mayor’s Office of Homeless Services, staff is in the process of planning for their annual Homeless Point-in-Time (PIT) count and are in need of volunteers to help! The PIT Count is an important service engagement and data collection strategy that helps to advance The Journey Home, Baltimore’s plan to end homelessness. The PIT helps Baltimore to identify individuals, families, and youth experiencing homelessness and connect them to much needed housing and support services. It also helps the Mayor’s Office to gather important data on the needs and characteristics of people experiencing homelessness. This information is used to inform community planning and the development of effective interventions to end homelessness in Baltimore.
Beginning on Sunday, January 27, 2019 and throughout the week, volunteers are needed to canvass neighborhoods, hospitals, service provider’s locations, and other places that people experiencing homelessness can be found in Baltimore to administer surveys to individuals experiencing homelessness.
If you have any questions, contact Brian Reynolds at Brian.Reynolds@baltimorecity.gov or call 410-396-6807.
