Volunteers needed for homeless count

Volunteers are needed to assist with a point-in-time homeless count that will take place in January. The count will determine the level of funding that local organizations working with the homeless will receive from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.

Meg’s House is the agency which will be leading the homeless count. They will be setting up tables for people to register for one of their three programs that address homelessness. Those programs are GAMES, Project HOPE and Operation Impact. The GAMES Transitional Housing Program (Greenwood, Abbeville, McCormick, Edgefield, and Saluda) provides temporary housing (up to 24 months) and supportive services to families and individuals who are facing homelessness. Project HOPE (Housing Opportunities for People Everywhere) provides permanent housing for chronically homeless individuals. Operation Impact provides permanent housing and supportive services for chronically homeless individuals.

Those interested in assisting Meg’s House with the count should contact Rebecca Abrahamsen at Meg’s House by calling (864) 227-1890. Training for volunteers is tentatively scheduled to be held at the United Center for Community Care on Monday, January 7, 2013. No time has been set for the training.
