Volunteer for the Annual Homeless Count

Captain Jonathan Tom spoke to those who volunteered to count the Homeless at the annual count in 2019. Kim Clary (left) helped organize the event.

(Editor’s note: Volunteers Kim Clary and David Morena, who are organizing the Pacific Palisades Homeless Count, said they are short of volunteers. The Pacific Palisades Task Force on Homelessness (PPTFH) has decided to do their own recruiting so whoever signed up on LAHSA was asked to sign up through PPTFH via Morena and Clary.

The two noted that “this year we will be doing it differently due to Covid.  It will all be outside and people have to come in their own pods or be comfortable being in a car outside of their pod.  The other option is to drive one’s own car to the area, but that will only work for the walking tracts which are at the beach.  LAHSA will have everyone count on an app on their phone.  PPTFH will also ask counters to do a paper count so we can see the raw data.”)

WHAT:    The Greater Los Angeles Homeless Count

WHEN:    5:30 a.m. Wednesday January 26, 2022

WHERE:  Corpus Christi Catholic Church Parking Lot on Carey St. – 880 Toyopa Dr., Pacific Palisades, 90272

Register by emailing Kim Clary and David Morena (kimjdave@msn.com) 

Why volunteer? Make a positive impact in the lives of homeless individuals by volunteering your time and service to help with the Count. Your contribution goes well beyond your donated time. The data gathered brings needed resources and awareness to the issue.

Volunteers receive in-depth training from the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority (LAHSA) through on-line videos. Due to Covid, the entire Count process will occur outside.  It will take about three hours of your time to count our homeless neighbors.

Be a part of this rewarding, important once-a-year community activity!

 This event is hosted by PPTFH and sponsored by the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority, (LAHSA), 811 Wilshire Blvd., 6th Floor, Los Angeles, CA, 90017
