On any given day, there are more than 93,000 homeless children, families and adults in Florida. To ensure funding for critical services to assist those in Pinellas County, collecting data on this population is required.

On Tuesday, Jan. 24, volunteers are needed to help the Pinellas County Homeless Leadership Board conduct a one-day Point in Time count that surveys the homeless population throughout the county. More than 350 volunteers are needed for the event. Volunteers are required to attend a 90-minute training session in January to review the survey and learn about the project.

Volunteers can request north or south Pinellas locations as well as indicate the shifts they’d be able to work on Jan. 24. To volunteer for the Point in Time project or for more information, go to http://www.pinellashomeless.org/pitvolunteer.
