National survey to count homelessness in Brantford seeks volunteers
A national survey to assess the number of people dealing with homelessness will be conducted in Brantford this month.
The Point In Time (PIT) Count surveys will be conducted by a team through Brantford Native Housing as part of a larger study at 30 different locations across Canada.
Officials for the survey said data collected will help to allocate resources and funding to combat homelessness across the country and in the Six Nations/Brant County area.
In 2007 there were 316 people living on the streets in Brantford. Of the entire homeless population in Brantford, 26 per cent identify as First Nations. Many of those who identify as First Nations, are from the Six Nations.
Surveys in Brantford will be conducted on April 13th.
Roughly 150 volunteers are needed for the surveys to be conducted. Anyone interested in volunteering please contact Annalise Clarkson at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 519-756-2205.
