HOPE 2015 - NYC Street Survey

On January 26, 2015, the NYC Department of Homeless Services will conduct its annual Homeless Outreach Population Estimate (HOPE).  We need thousands of volunteers to canvass parks, subways, and other public spaces to estimate the number of people living unsheltered in the city.  Just one night of your time will help us collect vital information for outreach teams to help homeless people leave the streets for a better life.

3,000 NEW YORKERS NEEDED…The information volunteers gather during HOPE 2015 is critical to our ongoing efforts, but we need your help to make it possible.  We need more than 3,000 volunteers, age 18 or older, to give just one night of their time to help survey the number of New Yorkers living on city streets.  We will provide you with training on the night of the survey.
