[ARCHIVED] Count Us In: Volunteer for King County Point in Time Count

Volunteer during Count Us In to help determine the number of people living without permanent shelter in King County.

Previously, the point in time count was known as One Night Count and the youth and young adult count was called Count Us In.

Now, All Home King County has adopted the name Count Us In to describe the entire range of point in time count activities — including a count of people living unsheltered, living in shelter or transitional housing, a qualitative survey of people experiencing homelessness across King County, and specialized approaches to counting subpopulations, such as youth and young adults and families.

While the count's core purpose is to collect data on the needs of people experiencing homelessness, it also provides an opportunity to increase awareness of homelessness and to spark action.

A successful and accurate count is an essential component to informing the system response to the need in our community, and to ultimately making homelessness rare, brief and onetime.

Count Us In takes place during the early hours of Jan. 27, 2017. To learn more and sign up volunteer, go to allhomekc.org.
