2019 UNSHELTERED POINT IN TIME HOMELESS COUNT

The Community Service Board of Middle GA-Ogeechee Division will be participating in the 2019 Unsheltered Point in Time Homeless Count with the Georgia Department of Community Affairs. The objective of the count is to assess the level of need for the homeless population in Burke County so that state programs can determine funding allocation to end homelessness in Georgia. Volunteers with the program will survey homeless persons on the night of January 28, 2019. Further information will be gathered from service agencies to identify those that may have been uncounted until February 3, 2019. To provide or request additional information on the count and/or refer volunteers to a possible location of a homeless individual or family, please contact Tracey Johnson with the CSB of Middle GA at 7064376863.
