Annual Homeless Census and Survey

As the lead agency for Home Sonoma County, the Continuum of Care for Sonoma County, Santa Rosa and Petaluma, the Commission and its partners have been required to conduct a point-in-time census of sheltered and unsheltered homeless families and individuals in the last 10 days of January in alternate (odd-numbered) years. Beginning in 2015, we began conducting a point-in-time census of sheltered and unsheltered homeless individuals and families on an annual basis. You can see previous result here at the bottom of the page under:  Annual Point In Time Reports and Executive Summaries

The 2020 Homeless Count will take place on Friday, January 31, 2020, from 5 am-9 am

Locations will be across Sonoma County. Approximately 150-175 community volunteers are needed for this year's count. Volunteers work with paid guides who have experienced homelessness and canvass all census tracts across the county.Deployment sites will be based in Santa Rosa, Guerneville, Healdsburg, Petaluma, and Sonoma Valley   (see list below). We encourage all contractors to support the count each year by volunteering, and your participation is critical to having a successful count. A series of trainings will be held for volunteers in late January and will be listed on the Community Development Commission's website at   http://sonomacounty.ca.gov/CDC/Homeless-Services/Volunteer-for-the-Homeless-Count

Please contact Michael Gause, Ending Homelessness Program Manager, with any questions at:
