2020 Homeless Count in Metro Vancouver (Throughout the day)
The Homeless Count involves identifying and conducting a brief anonymous survey with people experiencing homelessness. The street survey typically involves walking, biking or driving around a neighbourhood looking for individuals to survey. The shelter survey is conducted in various shelters across the region.
The 2020 Homeless Count team is recruiting qualified volunteers for the 2020 Homeless Count in Metro Vancouver. The Count will take place throughout the region inside shelters during the evening of Tuesday, March 3, 2020 and on streets throughout the day and evening of Wednesday, March 4, 2020.
While everyone is welcome to apply, to ensure the scientific integrity and a proper implementation of the Count we are looking for volunteers with specific skills and experience, such as:
- experience with previous homeless counts or professional/volunteer experience working with people experiencing homelessness;
- compassion, acceptance, and comfort with one-on-one conversations with people on the street;
- a non-judgmental attitude and a good sense of humour.
