Next Tuesday through Thursday (January 27th, 28th, & 29th), you can volunteer to help count the number of homeless people in the Greater Los Angeles area. The Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority (LAHSA) is an independent agency set up by local government in 1993 with the mission “to support, create and sustain solutions to homelessness in Los Angeles County by providing leadership, advocacy, planning, and management of program funding.”
The Count takes place at night. All participants will receive training and no one will be out on the streets alone. More information on the organization and event is available here. Teams of five or more are encouraged to sign up and commit to helping out for at least one of the dates.
