The 2018 Homeless Outreach Population Estimate (HOPE) will take place on Monday, January 22. You can volunteer to survey homeless individuals by registering and completing the online orientation.
On January 22, from 10 PM to 4 AM, teams of volunteers will canvass selected areas of the five boroughs and count the number of individuals sleeping on the street and in other public spaces, including the subway.
To volunteer, you must be 18 or older and willing to work from 10 PM to 4 AM, regardless of the weather. You will be trained before going out with your team.
