The annual Homeless Point-In Time Count will take place on Thursday, Feb. 22.

Hyde Park United Methodist is serving as a deployment site for volunteers.

The annual Homeless Count in Hillsborough County is coordinated by the Tampa/Hillsborough County Continuum of Care (CoC), led by the Tampa Hillsborough Homeless Initiative in conjunction with community partners. The data, collected through a short survey and observation during the Homeless Count, provides a Point-In-Time (PIT) ‘snapshot’ as to what the homeless population in our community looks like during a single, 24-hour period to help community planners better understand, through demographic information, who is homeless, why, and for how long.

YOU can HELP us, HELP OUR Homeless Neighbors by:

  1. Volunteering to help conduct the Street Count or at the Youth Count Event: Visit the 2018 Homeless PIT Count volunteer page to learn more about volunteer options.

  • Socks (most needed are adult male, basic colors)
