WeAllCount

Mayor Catherine Blakespear and volunteers

You Can Help CRC Determine Who is Homeless in Our Community

Friday, January 25  |  4:00 am – 8:00 am  |  650 Second St. Encinitas 

Please join us on Friday, January 25th! We need over 60 volunteers to help provide an accurate count of those who are homeless or unsheltered in our community.

Community Resource Center is partnering with organizations across San Diego County to conduct the annual WeAllCount Campaign. The Campaign brings together the Regional Task Force on the Homeless, community volunteers, and service providers to identify those experiencing homelessness in our communities. WeAllCount is the San Diego name for the federally mandated annual census of homeless persons known as the Point-in-Time-Count (PITC). The PITC is meant to be a one-day snapshot of persons living either on the streets or in short-term shelters.

The purpose of the WeAllCount is to conduct a street outreach count of those who are homeless in need of services. The count will enable CRC, our city leaders and other service providers, to secure government and local funding and for desperately needed housing and self-sufficiency programs that serve individuals and families in our communities who are experiencing homelessness.

CRC will coordinate WeAllCount activities in the Encinitas, Solana Beach and Del Mar neighborhoods.

This year, the Regional Task Force on the Homeless has made some changes to their methodology based on recommendations from HUD, and this year they are changing to an “engaged count” where professional homeless outreach workers will team with volunteers to survey unsheltered people encountered the night of the count. CRC staff will be teaming with volunteers during the count.

Individuals who are interested in volunteering must view a brief training video available here.

Sign up with a friend or family member and give back to your community together!
