count homeless
   The city is looking for volunteers to partici-
pate in the “Point-In-Time Count” from 5 to

   The count will help the city, in conjunction

unsheltered homeless within the city.
   The survey will assist the city in providing
services to help the homeless population and
prevent future homelessness.
   All are being encouraged to volunteer
including county and city employees, service
providers, faith-based organizations, college
students, civic organizations, bilingual citizens
as well as anyone with a heart for the home-
less population.
