City of St. Louis needs volunteers to conduct homeless census next Wednesday]

This e-mail is being sent to members of United Way’s St. Louis Cares program. On Wednesday, January 25, the City of St. Louis will conduct the annual Homeless Census. The census gathers information about the size and characteristics of the homeless population of St. Louis. This is essential to the effective planning and provision of homeless assistance and prevention services.
Volunteers are needed to interview and fill out a 10-question survey for individuals who are homeless. All volunteers will be led by an experienced outreach worker. Thirty volunteers are needed Wednesday, January 25 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Volunteers will meet at the Society of St. Vincent De Paul (100 N. Jefferson Ave., 63103) for orientation. At 11 a.m., teams will then carpool to various locations around the city. Within each team's assigned area, partners will conduct the census on foot. Wear walking shoes and dress warmly. When the teams are finished at 2 p.m., everyone will reassemble at the Society of St. Vincent De Paul to have some food and turn in all census forms.
