Corvallis Social Justice: …Volunteers needed for PIT Count

From the Corvallis Advocate:

Local Volunteers Needed for Regional PIT Count: The Community Services Consortium (CSC), a state-designated community action agency providing programs and services for community members experiencing poverty and homelessness in Benton, Linn, and Lincoln Counties, is looking for local volunteers to assist with the upcoming Point-in-Time (PIT) Count, an annual nationwide count of sheltered and unsheltered people experiencing homelessness that happens every January.

PIT Count volunteers will work in pairs or small groups (new volunteers will be paired with experienced people) to conduct as many interviews and/or counts as possible at one of many designated sites in all three counties using the Counting Us app or provided paper forms – or join one of the coalition’s street outreach teams to conduct field counts in cities, towns, and forests. 

To learn more and sign up to volunteer, send an email to or call or text 541-714-0065. If you are unable to volunteer but still want to help, donations directly support volunteer work by providing supplies, gift cards, and hot meals to participants; you can donate here or by texting “PIT” to 53-555.
