The PIT Count is a great opportunity to raise awareness of the challenges of homelessness, hear personal stories of those in our community experiencing homelessness, and demonstrate the compassion of the Durham community.

What: Volunteers canvass the community in teams of 3-5 persons, escorted by law enforcement officers, and collect survey data through interviewing homeless persons.

Who: Volunteers must be 18 years or older and have the ability to walk distances in designated locations. A smart phone/device will be needed to download the Counting Us app for the survey. More information will be shared during the required volunteer training/orientation.

When: The evening of Wednesday, January 29, 2020.
