Homeless Service Day & Veteran Stand Down

The Lee County Homeless Coalition will host the 20th Annual Homeless Service Day and Veteran Stand Down on Saturday, January 25, 2020, at City Gate Ministries. The opening ceremony will begin at 8:45 a.m. During this event the coalition will also conduct an annual census to determine the number of homeless in our community. The count is a tally of who is homeless on a given night and provides a snapshot of those who experience homelessness throughout the year. Collecting good data about this population is essential to understanding the causes of homelessness and designing effective responses.

This event provides a variety of services including food, hygiene kits, hair cuts, medical care, VA benefits and referrals for substance abuse addictions and mental health counseling to people who are homeless.

We are in need of volunteers to assist with the event and to help with our annual census. The census will also be conducted at various outreach sites in the community.

If you are interested in volunteering for the Annual PIT Census at any of the new locations this year, at the Homeless Service Day and Veteran Stand Down, or if your agency is interested in having a table at the Homeless Service Day and Veterans Stand Down, please register at www.homelesscount.com.
