ANNUAL POINT IN TIME SURVEY: VOLUNTEERS NEEDED
There are thousands of individuals and families in shelter at any time, and hundreds more living without shelter in Connecticut. Only by knowing who, where, and how many people are experiencing homeless in CT can we plan and identify the resources needed to best serve the most vulnerable, and ultimately move families into permanent housing.
WE NEED YOUR HELP WITH THIS YEAR’S ANNUAL POINT IN TIME COUNT!
WHAT: The Point-in-Time Count is a one-day count of sheltered and unsheltered homeless individuals and families across the United States. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) requires that each count is conducted at the end of January every year.
Join us on January 24, 2017 to make a difference in the lives of homeless men, women, and children throughout Connecticut by taking part in the nation’s largest homeless census.
Description: Participate in searching for and administering a survey to homeless individuals and families in Connecticut. You may designate the region that you would prefer to participate in and will be trained with a team of volunteers. (PLEASE SELECT “FAIRFIELD COUNTY” AND THEN “STAMFORD” AS YOUR AREA OF CHOICE)
WHEN: Tuesday, January 24, 2017
- 6:30 PM – Training (Pizza will be served)
- 7:00 PM to 11:00 PM – Surveying in Designated Areas
WHERE: Meet at 141 Franklin Street and be sure to join us back at Franklin Street for hot cocoa after the survey is complete!

Early Childhood & Parenting Program Ribbon Cutting
We are now investing resources and talent into educating our littlest learners!
On January 19th, 2016, Inspirica launched our newest innovation, the Early Childhood and Parenting Program. The newest addition to our successful Children’s Services program will provide a much needed educational opportunity for our homeless youth ages 0-5.
Investing in children is the most effective way to break the cycle of homelessness. The mission of Inspirica’s Early Childhood and Parenting Program is to make sure the homeless children in our care do not grow up to be homeless adults.
