County Board of Supervisors Promotes Homelessness Volunteerism

CountyAt the San Diego County Board of Supervisors meeting on December 3rd 2013, Supervisors Greg Cox and Ron Roberts proposed that the County promote volunteerism for the annual WeALLCount/Point-in-Time Count, an event that gathers estimates on the number of unsheltered and sheltered homeless persons living in San Diego County.

The event results in service providers having a better understanding and ability to address homelessness throughout the region.

Motioned by Supervisor Ron Roberts and seconded by Supervisor Dave Roberts, the Board of Supervisors unanimously agreed to authorize the Chief Administrative Officer to allow County employees to participate in the annual PITC on January 24, 2014 and receive compensation on County time.

Collaborations are happening all across the country as we join hands to assess the scope of homelessness in the nation and to strategically craft effective solutions to end homelessness.
