Help address homelessness in our community.

Sign-up to volunteer for the 2024 Point in Time Count on January 24, 2024.

On January 24, 2024, from 4:00 – 9:00 AM PST, volunteers across Kern County will come together to count the number of people experiencing homelessness in our communities. The Point in Time (PIT) Count provides a snapshot view of homelessness in our cities and county. We depend on an accurate PIT Count to receive adequate funding and ensure proper allocation of resources and energy to address homelessness.

Volunteers drive the success of our PIT Count. We depend on hundreds of everyday citizen volunteers to canvass our communities and make sure every one of our neighbors experiencing homelessness is counted.
