2020 Homeless Count

The 2020 Homeless Count in Metro Vancouver will take place on the night of Tuesday, March 3 and throughout the day on Wednesday, March 5. Governments, funders and community agencies rely on data from homeless counts to help make informed policy and program decisions. As in previous years, the goals of the 2020 Homeless Count are to obtain a reliable estimate on the number of people experiencing homelessness, to obtain a demographic profile of those individuals through the count survey, and to identify long-term data trends of homelessness in the region.

We need your help! We are now accepting applications to volunteer for the 2020 Homeless Count. The count is only made possible through the help of volunteers. Over 1200 volunteers participated in the last Metro Vancouver-wide count in 2017, and we need your support to make the 2020 count a success.

If you would like to volunteer in any of the communities participating in the count, please fill in this volunteer application form at www.vancitycommunityfoundation.ca/initiatives/2020-homeless-count
