On January 27, 2014, the Department of Homeless Services will conduct its annual Homeless Outreach Population Estimate (HOPE). It is a unique opportunity to volunteer and participate in an extraordinary citywide effort. Homeless Services needs approximately 3,000 volunteers to help survey the number of homeless individuals living on city streets, parks, and in other public spaces in New York City. Volunteers assist from approximately 10:30 pm to 4:00 am performing HOPE to help the City best project service needs and allocate resources for the street homeless population. Those interested in volunteering should register here and mention they heard about this opportunity through Citizen Corps Council.
