Due to the current winter surge of COVID-19, the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority’s (LAHSA) 2022 Greater Los Angeles homeless count has been postponed to February 22-24. Those persons already registered for the count will soon receive an email from LAHSA confirming their registration for the new date.
“In consideration of everyone’s safety, we are encouraging volunteers to sign up as teams of two or more.” the city’s webpage read. “Our top priority is to have every volunteer engage meaningfully and safely during the count. Sites will follow public health and social distancing guidelines.”
Count collection will “require the use of a personal smartphone to collect data via an app,” the city added.
The data gathered “will be used to determine how vital resources and services will be provided to the homeless individuals and families that reside in our community and throughout the Los Angeles area,” according to the city.
