The City of Monrovia, along with other cities in Los Angeles County, will once again participate in the Point-In-Time Homeless Count, an annual event coordinated by the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority.
This year’s count is scheduled to take place on Tuesday, Jan. 21, 2020. On that evening, volunteers will be surveying Monrovia, along with other areas of the San Gabriel Valley, to determine how many people in the area are homeless. The data collected is used to better design programs and deploy resources to serve the homeless population.
On the evening of Jan. 21 any individual interested in volunteering is asked to arrive at the Monrovia Community Center (119 W. Palm Ave.) at 8 p.m. A volunteer training and orientation session will occur at that time, and representatives from the City’s Community Services Department and Police Department will be on hand to address any questions or concerns. The actual count is expected to begin at 9 p.m.
