Conducting the Survey

Volunteers are identified with campaign t-shirts.


Conducting the Survey

Volunteers go in teams of 5-10 with flashlights, maps,

and $5 gift cards as incentives.


Conducting the Survey

Volunteers are trained by seasoned outreach workers on how to interview homeless individuals, and what to expect “in the field.”
