Sunderland Neighborhood Homeless Point-In-Time Count
Jan 26th – Feb 2nd 2022
In partnership with JOIN, PSU, and the Joint Office for Homeless Services, Dignity Village will be participating in the P-I-T Count. The annual count and collected surveys determines the amount and types of funding our local governments receive to support houseless people. Each year, houseless populations in Portland are drastically undercounted due to lack of enough volunteers. If you’re interested in helping, especially if you have built trusting relationships with campers our area, you can call our main phone line 503 281-1604 and ask for Avery.
