On Monday, February 6, the NYC Department of Homeless Services (DHS) will conduct its annual Homeless Outreach Population Estimate (HOPE), a HUD-mandated citywide community volunteer effort to count each homeless person living in public spaces across the five boroughs during the coldest time of the year.
We are calling on YOU, our fellow New Yorkers, to help us canvas parks, subways, and other public spaces to estimate the number of people who find themselves living on the street. We need thousands of volunteers to make the HOPE Count a success. Last year, a record of 3,800+ New Yorkers registered for the count; we are hoping to recruit as many or more this year.
