All Home is seeking volunteers for its annual Point in Time Count in the cities of Federal Way, Kent, Bothell, Sammamish, Bellevue and Tukwila. Volunteers will work in groups to count the total number of individuals sleeping outside on January 25th, between 2am-6am. According to All Home, “A successful and accurate (Point in Time) count is an essential component to informing our system response to the need in our community and to ultimately making homelessness rare, brief and one-time.” Volunteers are expected to have a cell phone, and to walk approximately 2-3 miles if necessary.
