Volunteers Needed for Point-in-Time Count to End Chronic Homelessness

The County of San Bernardino is planning for the upcoming 2018 Point-in-Time Count (PITC). The PITC is used to assist the County in receiving government and private grant funding, as well as other resources in order to assist homeless people exit life on the streets and also to help prevent homelessness.

Adult volunteers are needed in each community and from all backgrounds including, college students, civic/nonprofit organizations, faith-based organizations, current or formerly homeless, those bilingual, service providers, service providers, business and neighborhood groups and anyone else who would like to help alleviate homelessness.
