The City of Kamloops is looking for people to help with its count of the homeless this spring.
Last year, the city’s point in time count was cancelled amid the COVID-19 pandemic. This year, the count will resume on April 16 and the city is seeking volunteers.
The count not only gives the city an indication of how many people are on the streets in Kamloops, but also helps to gather information about demographics and services that may be needed.
Volunteers should be:
• compassionate, friendly and comfortable with one-on-one conversations;
• have experience volunteering or working with emergency services or the homeless;
• wear personal protective equipment and follow COVID-19 regulations;
• be 19 years of age or older.
Volunteers will be required to take some training.
