Do you have experience working with people experiencing homelessness? Are you comfortable having one-on-one conversations with people on the street? On March 3rd and 4th, we need volunteers to conduct surveys with people experiencing homelessness in shelters and on street routes. The data collected will be used by governments, funders and community agencies to help make informed policy and program decisions. New Westminster has been included in the homeless count since 2002.

There will be a volunteer training session at Holy Trinity Cathedral (514 Carnarvon Street) in New Westminster on Tuesday, February 18 from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.
