The 2011 Greater Los Angeles Homeless Count is coming up -- can you give three hours of your time to help?
Every two years the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority (LAHSA) organizes volunteers to count homeless people in LA County. In 2009, thousands of Angelenos came together for the largest homeless count in the nation. That year, more than 50,000 homeless men, women and children were identified, providing data that is critical to addressing the complexities of homelessness and planning how to best invest public resources, raise public awareness, identify the needs of homeless people, and improve service delivery opportunities to prevent and eliminate homelessness in Southern California.The Greater Los Angeles Homeless Count will take place again, January 25th through the 27th, 2011 in the following areas:
- Tuesday, January 25, 2011 (8PM): San Gabriel Valley, East LA County
- Wednesday, January 26, 2011 (8PM): West Los Angeles, South Bay/Harbor Antelope Valley
- Thursday, January 27, 2011 (6AM): Antelope Valley
- Thursday, January 27, 2011 (8PM): Metro Los Angeles, South Los Angeles, San Fernando Valley/Santa Clarita Valley
