The Marshall County Community Foundation, United Way of Marshall County, the local faith community, nonprofit agencies, businesses and volunteers will conduct a survey to collect data on homelessness and housing insecurities in Marshall County tomorrow. The Point-in-Time (PIT) count is a count of sheltered and unsheltered homeless people on a single night in January.
The PIT Count is looking for families and individuals who have relied on the County Trustee, churches or charities to help them stay housed month-to-month to take part in the survey. Persons facing eviction, who rely on couch surfing or feel they are forced to reside in an unsafe space are also encouraged to make their voices heard.
Specially trained volunteers will be assisting at each of the 6 locations throughout Marshall County tomorrow. The survey process is simple and quick. Survey sites include the:
Argos Parkside Church, 225 South Michigan Street, Argos. 6-8 p.m.
