Point in Time Homeless Count @ Samaritan Ministries
Jan 31 @ 8:00 pm – Feb 1 @ 12:00 am
Point in Time Homeless Count @ Samaritan Ministries | Winston-Salem | North Carolina | United States

The Homeless Point-in-Time Count is a one day, unduplicated count of sheltered and unsheltered homeless individuals and families in Forsyth County. The count, coordinated by United Way of Forsyth County and the Winston-Salem Forsyth County Continuum of Care, helps determine the extent of homelessness in our community. The data collected is used to plan services for the homeless throughout the year.

Volunteers are needed to help with the identification and counting of people who are sleeping outside on January 31, 2018 in
Winston-Salem and the surrounding areas. Volunteers will be organized into groups of four or five and in two shifts, 8pm-12am and 1am-4am. Organizers will be assembling bags of necessities to hand out to homeless men and women and are seeking donations of individual tissue packets, sun screen, bottled water, canned foods with pop-tops or pre-packaged food, and plastic utensils.

Volunteers will assemble at Samaritan Ministries 414 E NW Blvd, W-S, NC

For more information or to register to volunteer, contact Kathleen
