Looking for an opportunity to help out in your community?

The Nationwide Point In Time homeless count is our opportunity to assess the needs of our neighbors and help locate those neighbors with needs that demand immediate attention.

 

Why is this important?

State and Federal government use this guideline to decide where assistance funding will be distributed. Let's get an accurate count and help our neighbors in need!

What happens in Chelan/Douglas Counties?
The City of Wenatchee, in partnership with a number of social service organizations, will be engaging in extensive street outreach to connect with families experiencing homelessness. On January 24th, teams will walk the streets, distributing hot drinks and donations as well as surveying people sheltering outside.
 
That afternoon, providers will offer a community meal and donations of supplies and warm clothing at the Wenatchee Community Center, 504 S. Chelan from 12 PM - 4 PM. Surveys will also be offered to attendees, but the event is open to the public, with a special invitation to any household experiencing housing instability.
