The Cherokee County Human Needs Network will be doing its annual Point-In-Time count from 12 a.m. to 11:59 p.m. on Jan. 23, 2020. It's not too soon to volunteer, according to coordinators.

A point-in-time count is an unduplicated count on a single night of the people in a community who are experiencing homelessness, which includes both sheltered and unsheltered populations. The count also provides an excellent opportunity to increase awareness of homelessness.

Do you have a smart phone or a tablet? You can volunteer a few hours to talk to individuals experiencing homelessness and conduct a quick digital survey that will help Texas Homelessness Network and your local homeless service providers better understand the scope of homelessness

in your community.

Main base of operations will be the Converted School Bus in Jacksonville from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m.

The group is looking for teams to go out between 5 a.m. and 8 a.m. to known locations.

Organizations will need to have a staff available between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. at their location.

Teams will travel around town between 5 p.m. and 9 p.m.
