On Thursday January 31, 2019, from 5 am to 10 am, the San Mateo County Human Services Agency will conduct its biennial One Day Homeless Count. In collaboration with community partners, the San Mateo County Human Services Agency organizes a census and survey of people who are experiencing homelessness. Collecting strong data on the number, characteristics, and service needs of those experiencing homelessness in our community is a critical component for local planning and program development.  Find our 2017 One Day Homeless Count Final Report here.  

Volunteers play a critical role in the census and survey to collect accurate data. Please consider volunteering! By signing up to volunteer you are committing to the following:
