Point In Time Count Vitle Tool In Helping Those Housing Insecure.

Here is your opportunity to make a difference in the homeless issue in our community.

The city is asking for volunteers as it prepares for the semi-annual ‘point in time’ homeless population head count where twice a year volunteers are needed to spend the day going around the city counting the number of homeless.

The ‘Point-In-Time’ event will be on Friday, January 27, and you can work more than one shift:

8:00 am to 11:00 am

11:00 am to 2:00 pm

2:00 pm to 5:00 pm

5:00 pm to 8:00 pm

7:00 pm to 10:00 pm

10:00 pm to 12:00 am (Midnight)

Volunteers and donations are needed to record a 24-hour snapshot of homeless living within our city

A team of volunteers will be trained to interview those who are housing insecure.

The donations to hand out to the homeless are:





Body wipes


Bottled water

Water flavor packs

Hand warmers


Pre-packaged snacks

hard candy

Small blankets


Feminine hygiene products

Any other winter essentials

Items can be brought to the Simms Building located at 808 S. Buchanan.
