On January 23, 2020, the East Texas Human Needs Network (ETHNN) will conduct the Smith County Point in Time (PIT) Homeless Survey & Count. Teams of trained volunteers will canvas shelters, soup kitchens, streets and parks to count and survey people experiencing homelessness. This important information is used by our community and service providers to design, fund, and implement programs that help homeless individuals and families find a place they can call home.

Anyone 18 years old and older who shares our commitment to helping the homeless of Smith County is encouraged to volunteer. We will provide you with training on the day of the survey. Every team will be led by an experienced team leader.

Volunteers will be assigned to various sites based on the shift and volunteer role chosen. After a brief training, volunteer teams will disperse throughout the community and count/survey individuals living on the street, locations not intended for human habitation, and in shelters.
