Hello, I'm Tarrant County Homeless Coalition. If you have any questions, please contact me.
The Homeless Count is a comprehensive census of the homeless designed to identify how many people are homeless in Tarrant and Parker County on any given day. More than 500 volunteers are needed to help canvass urban, suburban, and rural areas of Tarrant and Parker County. Register for the 2019 Homeless Count NOW! #everyonecounts2019. Register here.
Teams of 3 – 5 adults, age 18 and older. For safety, teams will stay together and conduct the count as a group, using ONE vehicle. This is an excellent project for congregations, community groups, and neighborhood associations; unfortunately, we are not able to accommodate volunteers younger than 18. We require teams of at least 3 people because this allows two people to conduct the survey and one person to stay aware of the surroundings; up to 5 people because we highly suggest riding together in one vehicle to the different areas on the map.
Many counting routes involve a good deal of walking through parks, vacant lots, and alongside roadways and trails, so wear comfortable shoes that you don’t mind getting dirty. Note: Individual volunteers (without a team) may register to participate in the Fort Worth count only, and team assignments will be made on Count Night upon arrival.
