ONE NIGHT… On January 30, 2012, from 10:30pm to 4am, the NYC Department of Homeless Services will conduct the Homeless Outreach Population Estimate (HOPE). We need thousands of volunteers to canvass parks, subways, and other public spaces to count the number of people living unsheltered in the city. Just one night of your time will help us collect vital information that is used by outreach teams to help homeless people leave the streets for a better life.
3,000 NEW YORKERS NEEDED…The information gathered by volunteers during HOPE 2011 is critical to our ongoing efforts, but we need your help to make it possible. We need more than 3,000 volunteers, who are 18 years-old or older, to give just one night of their time to help count the number of New Yorkers living on city streets. We will provide you with all the training you will need to conduct the survey on the night of HOPE plus a quick, convenient online orientation when you register to give you the basics.
Registration and information for the event is online on the HOPE website. You can also call 212-607-5366 for more information. Volunteers are needed throughout the city, so there are multiple volunteer sites in all five boroughs and all volunteers will be trained. Everyone will start and end the night at the volunteer site they choose. Please encourage friends, family and colleagues who may be interested in volunteering.
