2018pit

Deborah’s Place will serve as a lead agency for 2018 Point In Time Homeless Count.

Deborah’s Place will once again serve as lead agency for the street homeless count on Thursday, January 25, 2018 from 8:00PM – 2:00AM.

If you would like to volunteer to help us determine how many people are homeless (on one of the coldest nights of the year!), and inform data that will hopefully bring needed funding and resources to help people who are homeless in our city, please click on links below to fill out the form and submit it homelesscount@cityofchicago.org.  Make sure to choose Deborah’s Place on your Site Request Form!

DFSS is will be conducting one hour-information sessions about volunteer opportunities for those interested in assisting us with this effort. If you are interested in volunteering, and have not previously volunteered for the Point-In-Time Homeless Count, you are encouraged to attend. (information will be available soon) Please review last year video link listed below
