Volunteering Opportunity for the Semi-Annual

Point In Time Outreach Event!

A coalition of local agencies and volunteers will be conducting the Winter 2023 Point In Time Street Count in Manitowoc County over the night of January 25-26th, 2023. The focus of the count is to identify people who might be residing on the streets, in cars, on campgrounds, under bridges, or in similar places. Please let us know prior to the Count If you are aware of locations in the community where homeless people are sheltering. Services needed to help the homeless in our communities are a result of identifying these households. The information gathered is used at the state and federal levels to allocate resources for individuals and households requiring homelessness assistance. (See FAQ below.)

2 shifts are available between 11 PM-1 AM and 4 AM-6 AM on January 25-26th

Training will be provided before the count on Monday, January 3rd at 8:30-9:30 AM at United Way of Manitowoc County

Volunteers must be at least 18 years old.
