2019 City of Plano Point In Time Homeless Census
January 24 from 8pm-Midnight

Volunteers will assemble at Plano City Hall, 1520 K Avenue, Council Chambers.

We are forming a Custer Road Count Team. If you are interested in joining the Custer Road team, please contact Susan Williams at suzewill@yahoo.com . Join us for a night of service that you will never forget! Because once you do this, you’re going to understand homelessness in a different way.

How it works: Come to training that night. You sign a waiver/release. After the training, you are given a map with specific areas of town to visit and search for people experiencing homelessness. You document your findings and return to City Hall by midnight. You go home, go to sleep, are very tired the next day but satisfied you participated in a project that will help the homeless and the community. It’s a volunteer experience you’ll always remember!

Please be dressed to walk in the evening weather. Sometimes it rains or is icy, and we still go out to find people. While some groups may not get out of their cars depending on the area they are assigned many will. Please wear comfortable walking shoes and appropriate outer attire.

Will a police officer be on my team? Most teams will have a police officer assigned to accompany them, but several teams will not. Those who do not will have an officer they can contact if necessary. Teams without an officer search areas where a homeless individual has never been found on the night of the Count. At this time, we do not have information on which team numbers will have officers and which will not.
