BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – In order to justify federal, state, and local funding to help assist the end of homelessness in Brevard County, area communities will gather to support and conduct a homeless census on Jan. 26.

“We are in need of community volunteers who will help us canvass parks, beaches, shopping centers, day labor sites, soup kitchens and areas where the homeless habitually congregate, including libraries,” said Keith Heinly, United Way of Brevard Community Impact Manager.

“As volunteers you will be provided with routes, nametags, and survey forms. In addition to conducting the survey, you will also be distributing socks, t-shirts and other items to the homeless that you encounter.”

Volunteers must attend one of the training sessions scheduled during the week of Jan. 12 – 17.

“To the best of our ability we will assign new volunteers with individuals who have assisted with the Point in Time Count previously,” said Heinly.

Training Opportunities:

• Jan. 12: 10 a.m. at DAV #109, 435 Singleton Avenue, Titusville
Jan. 13: 9:30a.m. at Daily Bread, 815 E. Fee Avenue, Melbourne
Jan. 14: 10 a.m. at VOA, 4690 Lipscomb Street, Palm Bay
Jan. 15: 10a.m. at Red Cross, 1700 Cedar Street, Rockledge
