The Annual Point-In-Time Count Of The Homeless People in Riverside County is set for January 29th 2020.
And 7-hundred volunteers are needed to fan out across the county and count people living on the streets.
In 2018, there were 2,310 homeless people who were counted in Riverside County.
One year later, in 2019, that total had spiked nearly 22%, to 2,811.
And that does not factor in others who were missed and were not counted.
But bright and early on Wednesday January 29th from 6 a-m to 9:30 a-m, volunteers will go out and count the homeless.
If you want to volunteer, sign up at www.rivcoexchange.com or www.palmspringsca.gov.
You must undergo training, either online, or in person on January 14th from 9:30 a-m to 11:30 a-m at Palm Springs City Hall or Thursday January 16th from 5:30 p-m to 7:30 p-m at Palm Springs City Hall.
Call the County Coordinator at 951-358-3844 if you have more information.
