Alameda County's Homeless Count

Thank you to Laurie Capitelli, District 5 Councilmember, for sharing the following information on how we can be involved in Alameda County's Homeless Count. This is a great opportunity to hear directly from homeless service users, the vast majority of whom are negatively impacted by the achievement gap on a daily basis.  I just signed up to volunteer on January 30- will you join me?

2013 Homeless Assessment:
Volunteers Needed

What:EveryOne Counts 2013: Alameda County’s Homeless Count
When:Wednesday, January 30, 2012
Where:Alameda County
Every two years EveryOne Home conducts Alameda County’s Homeless Count to measure our community's progress towards ending homelessness and to maintain crucial funding for homeless services. EveryOne Home needs 250 community volunteers to interview homeless service users. Participation is anonymous and voluntary for the interviewees. EveryOne Home will do its best to match volunteers’ time and location preferences with site operating hours. Volunteers will be stationed at over 30 locations across Alameda County.
People interested in volunteering can register here.
Questions? Contact EveryOne Home at 510-670-9796 or everyonehome@acgov.org.


Follow me on Twitter and Facebook. Please spread the word to anyone interested in the achievement gap in Berkeley.
