Volunteers Needed for Claremont Homeless Count

Post Date:01/08/2018

The City of Claremont will be participating in the 2018 Greater Los Angeles Homeless Count in partnership with the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority (LAHSA). The count will be held on Tuesday, January 23. The City is currently recruiting volunteers to assist with this important community effort. To register to volunteer in Claremont, please email Management Analyst Viola Van at vvan@ci.claremont.ca.us. Please include your name and phone number, and if you are interested in being a driver. Volunteers will meet at the Joslyn Center at 8:00 p.m. on January 23 to receive training, maps, materials, and assignments. Teams of two to four volunteers will then be deployed to count specific blocks within Claremont. It is estimated that each team will spend 2-3 hours in the field. This is an excellent opportunity for individuals to make an impact on the lives of homeless individuals and families that reside within our community. The data gathered during this count will be used to determine how resources and vital services are provided throughout the Los Angeles area. For more information, please contact Viola Van at (909) 399-5356.
