You can help! ‘Count Us In’ needs volunteers for just one day

January 14, 2014 at 9:27 am | In How to help, West Seattle news | Comments Off

Interested in volunteering, but not a major/recurring commitment? Here’s something simple, but important:

Help us count homeless youth on January 23rd at Seattle Public Library Sites! Each year since 2011, King County has conducted Count Us In, a point-in-time count to gather information on homeless and at-risk youth. In 2013, 776 youth and young adults were counted as homeless or unstably housed.

Join us this year as we survey youth to better understand the extent and nature of youth homelessness in our community so that we can more effectively address this critical issue. Surveys will be completed by youth at youth shelters, community centers, parks, nonprofit agencies and libraries. Help us do better this year!

This volunteer must be high-energy and outgoing and will serve at different branches of the Seattle Public Library. Volunteers commit to one 2 to 4-hour shift on January 23rd, 2014. Want to volunteer? Click the “I’m Interested” button and we will follow up with you. **Please let us know the time and library you are interested in volunteering at.

(Editor’s note: Southwest Branch Library is the one West Seattle library listed, but we’re including the entire list in case another one is convenient for you or someone you know:
