ISLANDWIDE HOMELESS COUNT THIS FRIDAY
WHAT: The Guam Homeless Coalition will conduct its annual Point In Time (PIT) Homeless Count on Friday, January 31, 2020. The PIT count is an unduplicated count on a single day of homeless individuals and families in sheltered and unsheltered locations. The PIT count is conducted with the assistance of volunteers who serve as enumerators.
WHY: Data from the PIT count provides a statistically reliable snapshot of homeless persons and helps service providers better understand trends in homelessness.
WHEN: Friday, January 31, 2020. Teams will disperse at various times of the day to locations around the island beginning at 4AM until Friday evening to conduct the count.
WHERE: The Salvation Army’s Tiyan office will serve as the headquarters for the PIT count. All volunteer enumerators will meet at the headquarters throughout the day.
OTHER: The following individuals are available for interview: Ms. Angelina-Marie S. Cruz, Guam Homeless Coalition Chairperson; Ms. Paula Perez, PIT Count coordinator and Ms. Amor Say, Guam Housing and Urban Renewal Authority planner.
On Friday, January 31, 2020, CSS along with the Guam Homeless Coalition and 300 volunteers will be conducting a Point-in-Time Outreach to Guam's homeless. If you would like to donate food to feed our volunteers who will be working from morning until night, please contact Paula Perez at 635-1442.
