HOMELESS ACTION NETWORK OF DETROIT (HAND)

 

===========================================

 

POINT IN TIME (PIT) COUNT JANUARY 2013

 

Dear Community Leader:

 

Team Leaders and Team Members are being assembled NOW for the upcoming Point-in-Time (PIT) Count of Unsheltered Homeless on the evening of 1/29/13. To become a team leader, follow the instructions below.

 

 


Team Leaders will:

        Assemble and lead their team

        Be a resource for team members and be responsible for data collection forms

        Provide a large vehicle (preferably a van) for team members and for transporting resources for the homeless (coats, blankets, large boxes, etc.)



 

In addition to Team Leaders, we will need two (2) team members and one (1) Street Ambassador on each team. The two team members will be the go-to persons for the leader, assisting as directed. The Street Ambassador will be a person currently homeless or homeless within the past six months, and will be able to even more effectively connect with the (other) homeless persons in the count area. A $25 stipend will be given to the Team Leader to be paid to the Street Ambassador.

 

Click here to register your team for the count.

 

With your support, we are confident that we will make a change in our community. Thank you in advance for your willingness to help those in need!

NEXT DAY INTERVIEWS ---- VOLUNTEERS NEEDED!!!

 

Because many of our homeless are transient, it is not possible to locate all of them in a single night. Therefore, we need volunteers to survey individuals during the days following the initial count (Jan. 30 Feb. 1). To volunteer, click here.
