HOPE 2022 Volunteers Needed

Posted on:

HOPE 2022 On Tuesday, January 25th, 2022, the Department of Homeless Services (DHS) will conduct its annual Homeless Outreach Population Estimate (HOPE) Survey, a point-in-time survey undertaken each winter that helps the City estimate the number of unsheltered New Yorkers living on the street on one of the coldest nights of the year. The results gathered through this survey provide the City with valuable information that helps determine how best to allocate resources in support of New Yorkers in need. Volunteers are needed from approximately 10 PM – 4 AM on the night of the HOPE count. Please visit to learn more and to register.

The night of HOPE is coming soon! Please sign up at to help NYC conduct this important annual survey by canvassing parks, subways, and other public spaces.  Volunteers are needed from approximately 10:00 p.m. to 4:00 a.m. on the night of January 25th. Just a few hours of your time will help ongoing efforts to support unsheltered New Yorkers and encourage them to come off the streets and subways. Thanks to the efforts of past volunteers along with the ongoing 24/7/365 efforts of outreach workers via the HOME-STAT outreach program, the City of New York has helped more than 4,200 New Yorkers come off the streets and into transitional and/or permanent housing since 2016.

As NYC works to address unsheltered homelessness across our city, one person at a time, this is a great opportunity to participate in an extraordinary citywide effort. If you have volunteered before, please sign up again. If you have yet to experience how truly rewarding a night of HOPE can be, please join us for the first time this year.  Compensatory time may be available to you for participating – consult with your Agency and supervisor to see if this applies.

Of course, the safety of everyone involved in HOPE is our highest priority and a range of COVID safety policies and procedures will be in place, including:

If you haven’t already, please visit to learn more and to register. Your participation is essential to helping us address the challenge of homelessness and support some of our City’s most vulnerable residents as they get back on their feet.
