Pierce County is seeking volunteers for its 2022 Homeless Point-In-Time Count Jan. 27 and 28. According to the county, the PIT count provides data to review trends, plan programs and gather information to better serve the community and is an important tool to evaluate the impact of homelessness on both individuals and the county.
Volunteers must register online, be over 18 years old, have access to a smart phone and commit to attend a virtual training session. Volunteer opportunities are limited and will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there was no unsheltered survey conducted in 2021. Pierce County will resume unsheltered surveys in the upcoming count.
