Volunteers Sought for Homeless Count in La Mirada

The City of La Mirada is seeking volunteers to assist with the 2016 Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority (LAHSA) Homeless Count. Each year, the LAHSA coordinates a count of homeless persons in the region to obtain an estimate of the homeless population in Los Angeles County. This year’s Count will be held on Tuesday, January 26.


The Homeless Count involves volunteers canvassing predetermined areas and tallying homeless and transient persons from a distance. Volunteers are not allowed to engage homeless persons.


Volunteers will receive training and briefing prior to the Count and should expect to assist in La Mirada from 7 to 11 p.m. on Tuesday, January 26. Volunteers are needed to participate as drivers using personal vehicles, navigators, team leaders, and counters. Participants must be over 18 years of age.
