There are many opportunities to volunteer, whether it is on an ongoing basis with a homeless service provider or during a one-time special event.
2013 Southern Nevada Homeless Census
As part of a regional response to homelessness, we are preparing for the 2013 Homeless Census occurring on January 24th-25th during the early morning hours. The 24th will include urban areas such as Las Vegas, North Las Vegas, Henderson, and unincorporated Clark County, while the 25th will include rural and outlying areas of Southern Nevada. The census is a point-in-time count performed to assess the number of people experiencing homelessness living in the region. An accurate count allows funders and service providers to determine the types and level of services needed.
Volunteers will travel into our census tracts and perform a visual count of our homeless population. Volunteers with cars and flashlights are needed. Training will be provided.
For questions or to volunteer, please go to the Volunteer Center of Southern Nevada or call (702) 892-2300.
