It’s only a week until the 2017 Los Angeles Homeless Count on January 26th. Join the over 1,000 volunteers participating in this annual census of our neighbors experiencing homelessness throughout Los Angeles. The Greater Wilshire area needs about 45 volunteers for the 22 Census Tracts we’ll canvass. This is a visual-only count done mostly by car in teams of 2-4 and we’ll provide training on the night of the census.

For more information and to register at our deployment site at 600 S. La Brea Ave: http://www.theycountwillyou.org/600slabrea

We hope to see many of you again this year!
