Zero2016 Seeks Volunteers
Zero2016 Outreach Blitz: Join the movement!
As a component of Zero2016, Montgomery County is partnering with local agencies to implement a grassroots effort to conduct a two day “outreach blitz” to locate individuals experiencing unsheltered homelessness in Montgomery County. The purpose of this “outreach blitz” is to create a more complete by-name list of people experiencing chronic homelessness.
Got potential volunteers at your agency?
With assistance from volunteers, the County Outreach teams will conduct a two day “blitz” in October to search our local streets, woods, and abandoned cars and properties for people experiencing homelessness. Volunteers will participate in an hour long training session and assigned to teams to search designated areas. Once assigned to teams, the volunteers will work together with their assigned team members for the duration of the outreach blitz. With this in mind, volunteers must commit to participating in both dates for the outreach blitz.
Dates/Times for the Outreach Blitz:
- October 19th 8:30pm – 2:00am (Training + Outreach)
- October 20th 9:30pm – 2:00am (Outreach)
*Required: Commitment from volunteers for both dates.
