The City of Monterey Park will be participating in the Greater Los Angeles Homeless Count on Tuesday, January 21, 2020. The city is partnering with the Los Angeles Homeless Service Authority (LAHSA) and joining many other cities in Los Angeles County in the 2020 Homeless Count, #TheyCountWillYou. The point-in-time homeless count, an annual event coordinated by LAHSA, is used to determine the number of people in the city experiencing homelessness.
The City of Monterey Park is seeking volunteers ages 18 and over to participate in the count on January 21, 2020. The volunteers will first undergo a brief training and safety presentation. They will then be placed in groups and be assigned to specific census tracts to count the number of homeless in those specific areas. The training and count are expected to last from 7-11 p.m. Snacks and drinks will be provided.
Volunteers should go to the LAHSA website listed below to register and obtain information. Listed below is a direct link to Monterey Park page.
Persons who live in other areas of the county that want to volunteer can go to www.theycountwillyou.org and find their local city to sign up.
