Volunteers needed to count homeless in San Juan County

San Juan County is looking for volunteers to help out on Jan. 25, 2024 for the annual Point in Time Count and Survey. If you’re interested in volunteering, please call 360-378-4474 to learn more.

The Point in Time Count and Survey (PIT) is a yearly, nationwide event with a mission: to identify and better serve individuals and families experiencing homelessness.

The information collected during the PIT plays a pivotal role in informing policymakers at the local, state, and national levels. This data is sent to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and the Washington State Department of Commerce, giving them a snapshot of San Juan County residents experiencing both sheltered and unsheltered homelessness.

This invaluable information helps:

Secure millions of dollars in funding for vital resources, including affordable housing

Inform policy at the local, state, and national levels

Guide local resource allocation and planning

Drive advocacy efforts
