Austin’s Point in Time Count returns

Friday, November 4, 2022 by Elizabeth Pagano

For the first time since the start of the pandemic, the Ending Community Homelessness Coalition is resuming its Point in Time Count, and is looking for at least 1,000 volunteers to help get it done. The count will take place the night of Friday, Jan. 27, when volunteers will go into the community to survey the local population of those experiencing homelessness and hand out care kits. “The Point in Time Count is a great opportunity to get involved in our community’s efforts to end homelessness,” ECHO spokesperson Angela de Leon said in a statement to the press. “The more people who volunteer, the more supplies we’re able to hand out, the more conversations we’re able to have, and the more complete our survey results are going to be.” Volunteers can sign up individually or as a group. ECHO is also looking for donations of money and supplies to create care packs.
