Volunteers Needed To Help With The Amarillo’s PIT Count

The City of Amarillo is looking for volunteers to help with the Point in Time Count Survey.  This survey helps assess the current homeless situation in the city.

The survey questions help answer how many individuals are homeless in Amarillo? Where are they? And what are their needs?

The PIT Count is nationally required by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. During a 24-hour period on Jan. 24, from 5 a.m. to 11:59 p.m., volunteers will go across Amarillo and distribute a survey to individuals living on the street and people residing in shelters.

A meeting covering the PIT Count will take place on Friday from 10:30 a.m. until 12 p.m. in Room 275 of the Simms Municipal Building, located at 808 S. Buchanan Street. Volunteers can sign up to help with the PIT Count at the meeting.
