Join us for the 2013 HOPE Count!

Registration for the 2013 HOPE Count is now open!

Each January, we partner with the New York City Department of Homeless Services in their annual Homeless Outreach Population Estimate (HOPE), a unique overnight event during which volunteers fan out across the city and conduct a census of New Yorkers sleeping outside. The information gathered that night is invaluable, as it helps us adjust our efforts to make the greatest possible impact on helping the chronically homeless to realize better lives.

This year’s event will take place on January 28th, 2013, from late Monday night to early Tuesday morning. Many volunteers return year after year, describing the HOPE Count as a unique and memorable experience that allows them to connect with New York City and its inhabitants like never before.

If you’re interested, please sign up here. You can also check out our Facebook page to see photos of last year’s event.
