Volunteers needed for the 2011 Tri-Jurisdictional (Atlanta, DeKalb Co., and Fulton Co.) Homeless Census on January 25, 2011The more we understand about homelessness, the more we can help homeless persons. The Metro Atlanta Homeless Census and Survey is a vital step towards ending homelessness in the area. The community can use the census information to understand better the needs of Metro Atlanta’s homeless population. For nearly a decade, hundreds of devoted volunteer enumerators have been an invaluable part of the homeless census by helping the Tri-J determine the number of homeless persons in Metro Atlanta. With just a few hours of service on a single night, volunteer enumerators perform one of the most important jobs of the entire homeless census. Over 400 volunteers will be needed to cover several hundred miles of street. No prior experience is required beyond the desire to help your community. Please contact Josie Parker with any questions or to register as a volunteer: firstname.lastname@example.org / 404-639-9933 x323.
Next weekend, Sept. 13-14, in Perry, hymn sing, pancake breakfast, quilts, samplers, barbeque, woodcrafts, antiques, and more. Read more . . .
