VOLUNTEERS ARE NEEDED for the Lakeshore Housing Alliance’s Point-in-Time Count
Every year on the last Wednesday in January, The Lakeshore Housing Alliance (LHA) conducts a Point-in-Time Count of people experiencing homelessness. The Point-in-Time Count is a snapshot of homelessness in Ottawa County, helping to produce an estimate of the total number of individuals living unsheltered in our area annually.
One of the components of the Point-in-Time Count is a Street Count, where the LHA partners with local community members, law enforcement and housing service providers to identify people who are living in places not meant for human habitation. We are seeking volunteers for the Street Count. Groups of 3-4 volunteers will be given maps of the county, indicating locations where person living unsheltered may be found. Training will be provided beforehand.
