Everyone Counts
Every two years, the City of Long Beach Continuum of Care is required by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to conduct a street and service based homeless count.

Thursday, January 25, 2007, from 5 a.m. to 5 p.m., the City will be divided into 47 map segments to be canvassed by teams of three people represented by a 1) community volunteer, 2) service provider and 3) homeless or formerly homeless person.  Street outreach teams will cover citywide locations where homeless are known to reside to ensure best efforts to count people experiencing homelessness. 

For more information about this event, or to volunteer to help, please contact Susan Price, Homeless Services Officer for the City of Long Beach at 570-4003 or Susan price@longbeach.gov.
