Volunteer Opportunities

Point in Time Homeless Count

Department: Homeless Services
Location: Buffalo, Eau Claire, Trempealeau, and Jackson County
Shift: July 25th 11pm

Help us put a number to the amount of homeless in Buffalo, Eau Claire, Trempealeau, and Jackson County. Volunteers would cover an area in the county you choose to work in between 11 p.m. and 6:30 a.m. on Wednesday, July 25, 2018. Training can be provided.

Point in Time is a national count of homeless in the area during that given night. It would take approximately 1 hour to cover your area which would include looking in public areas like parks, parking lots, camp sites, down town areas, Walmart, bridges etc. If a homeless family or person is found, an interview is requested along with completing some paperwork on the interview. These found people are then offered a personnel hygiene item bag to help through their journey.

We will take as many volunteers as possible. We prefer people go in groups of 3 or more. At least one Volunteer needs to be 18 years old per group.
