VOLUNTEER FOR THE PASADENA HOMELESS COUNT
The Homeless Count sets in motion a year full of education, engagement & action for the Pasadena Partnership. Each year, volunteers help count people experiencing homelessness living on the streets of Pasadena during one night in the last ten days of January.
Volunteers will be sent in teams of 4-5 to an assigned zone on the night of January 23 (8:00-10:00 p.m.) and the morning of January 24 (6:00-8:00 a.m.) to help count and administer a survey to our neighbors experiencing homelessness. The same teams go out together in the evening and the morning. Volunteers should be 18+ and are asked to attend a virtual orientation to prepare for the count.
Volunteers will go out the evening of January 23 (8:00-10:00 p.m.) and the morning of January 24 (6:00-8:00 a.m.). All volunteers must attend a virtual orientation session.

Pasadena Homeless Count
Also called the Point-in-Time Count, Pasadena’s Homeless Count is a one-night snapshot of people experiencing sheltered and unsheltered homelessness that is reported to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) annually during the last ten days of January. The data derived from the Homeless Count is primarily used in the following ways:
- To understand the extent of homelessness and the changes in trends among specific subpopulations
- To identify local priorities to inform resource allocation decisions
- To inform the the planning and development of more effective services and resources
This year’s count is organized and implemented by the City of Pasadena Department of Housing in collaboration with the Pasadena Partnership to End Homelessness.
