Volunteers needed for annual homeless count

A Night with Stars by slalit

 

Every year, the Bear River Association of Governments (BRAG) participates in the Point in Time Count, when volunteers take to the streets, canyons, campgrounds, and other places in the community to count and extend services to individuals and families experiencing homelessness.  These numbers are then sent to federal organizations that make funding decisions based on this information.

BRAG needs approximately 50 volunteers to work in teams to interview individuals experiencing homelessness.  This is a four-day commitment due to the manner in which the outreach is conducted, wherein each team will work together in a designated geographical area the entire three days of the survey.  To be part of an outreach team, you will need to participate in a training session related to interviewing people experiencing homelessness and completing the survey forms.

Thursday, January 26, 2017 | 4-6am: Go survey with team members
