We need your help!

Alameda County is holding its annual Point-In-Time Homeless Count to do a snapshot census of how many community members are experiencing homelessness in a designated 24-hour period in our
county.

We are looking for volunteers who can help conduct Point-In-Time count surveys on January 25th from 5 am – 10 am.

Why is this important?
The Point-In-Time Count surveys is essential to helping Alameda County end homelessness. This survey gives us an opportunity to raise awareness to the challenges our homeless residents face, hear their personal stories, connect them with community resources and provide them with provisions such as hats, gloves, socks and toiletries.

Where can I volunteer?
We are looking for volunteers in cities and unincorporated areas across Alameda County. You will be able to indicate what geographic areas you would prefer to volunteer.

Volunteers will go out in groups. If you have a team or an individual you would like to volunteer with during the count, you can sign up as a group.

Where can you sign up?

It’s the holidays! A time for gathering, connecting with friends and family, and travel.

While you may enjoy cannabis, the effects of cannabis can be harmful for children, pets, and unsuspecting guests. Here's some tips on how to keep cannabis out of the wrong hands or paws.

How do you store cannabis safely?
Products should be stored in the original packaging. If products are transferred it should be clearly labeled. Items should be stored in a safe place that is not easily accessible by children, pets and guests.

How to dispose of cannabis?
Cannabis can be composted. Add it to your garden waste bin to dispose of it.
