Seeking Volunteers for Point-In-Time Count

The City of San Bernardino is seeking volunteers for its Point-in-Time Count  throughout the City on Thursday, Jan. 26 from 6 a.m. to 10 a.m. Volunteers will meet at the San Manuel Stadium.

The San Bernardino County of Homeless Partnership describes the Point-in-Time Count (PIT) as, “a count of sheltered and unsheltered people experiencing homelessness on a single night in January. Housing and Urban Development (HUD) requires that Continuums of Care conduct an annual count of people experiencing homelessness who are sheltered in emergency shelter, transitional housing and Safe Havens. Continuums of Care must also conduct a count of unsheltered people experiencing homelessness on an annual basis.  Each count is planned, coordinated, and carried out locally.”

Volunteers are asked to register by Wednesday, Jan. 18. To register, interested persons should complete the PITC Volunteer Registration and select San Bernardino City as the preferred location to survey.

Volunteers will need an Android smartphone, iPhone, or iPad to participate in the Point-in-Time Count Survey. The device should be no older than three to four years old and have at least 100MB of available space. AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon carriers are preferable.

For more information on the City of San Bernardino’s count, please contact Ashley Esquivel, Homeless Services Coordinator at 909-384-7272 ext. 3372.
