Understanding Our Homeless Population
Every two years, Marin County does a complete count of every person experiencing homelessness in Marin. This Point-in-Time Count helps us understand the needs of our population and track our progress decreasing homelessness.
Marin County's 2019 Point-in-Time Count is taking place on Monday, January 28, 2019. In the early morning hours, volunteers will team up with expert guides (individuals currently/previously experiencing homelessness) recommended by service providers. These teams will drive/walk all over assigned routes from 5:00 AM to 9:00 AM. Volunteers are expected to have a car and a mobile phone, be willing to help with transportation needs, and be able to walk approximately 2-3 miles if necessary.
Volunteers are asked to attend a one-hour training session prior to count day on Friday, January 18th, 2019. The trainings are scheduled for:
- 10:30 a.m.: Marin City Health and Wellness Center, 630 Drake Ave., Marin City
- 2:00 p.m.: Homeward Bound, 1385 N. Hamilton Parkway, Novato
- 5:30 p.m.: San Rafael City Hall Council Chambers, 1400 Fifth Ave., San Rafael
