HousingForwardNTX needs volunteers for the night of January 26th for our annual Point-in-Time Count! Volunteers will engage with our unhoused neighbors and help take a census of our neighbors experiencing homelessness that night. Groups of volunteers will be assigned to different census tracts throughout Dallas and Collin Counties. The data collected will help our Homeless Response System understand trends in order to create data driven strategies that will help reduce and solve homelessness in our community. Alternatively, HousingForwardNTX also needs help in spreading the word to bring more awareness to this volunteer opportunity.
