Dear Community Volunteers,
On behalf of the Regional Task Force on the Homeless staff and its Board of Directors we would like to thank you for making the 2016 WeAllCount a success.
Hundreds of you were up before dawn on Friday morning and hundreds of you have given of your time to interview our homeless neighbors.
Our volunteer site coordinators and assistants prepared for months to ensure their fellow volunteers were met with a cup of coffee and a smile in the early hours of the morning. Partner organizations offered their facilities, staff, and support. Many more worked behind the scenes to ensure the count was executed smoothly. We are keenly aware that without you this effort would not have been possible.
Every year we are overwhelmed with stories from the field of new perspectives gained and life-changing experiences. This year was no exception. Behind each number and survey, there is a life and a story to be told. Your efforts helped bring these stories to light and will truly make a difference in the effort to end homelessness in our community.
Our hope is that our combined efforts will result in the continuation of much-needed funding to sustain and improve programs and services in the San Diego region.
We look forward to sharing the results of the 2016 WeAllCount in early spring when we report the results to the federal government. Please see our next steps here.
Dedicated and passionate volunteers, like you, who take up the work of serving some of the most vulnerable, are helping to make ending homelessness a reachable goal in San Diego.
