AMARILLO, Texas (KAMR/KCIT) — The City of Amarillo is holding their second “Point in Time Count” (PIT Count), and is looking for volunteers to help out.
The count consists of going around the city during a 24-hour period to count the homeless population and conduct a survey.
The PIT Count helps get agencies information to help address the needs of the homeless population. It also helps get funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
If you want to help out, training sessions are available Tuesday, July 23 from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m., and Thursday, July 25 from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. at the Guyon Saunders Resource Center.
The second PIT Count is scheduled for Friday, July 26.
