The Mendocino County Homeless Services Continuum of Care (MCHSCoC) will be conducting its annual unsheltered Point-In-Time (PIT) Count which will begin at sunset on January 26, 2023, and run through the following week.  The Point in Time (PIT) Count is mandated by the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development and is used by the State of California and multiple Federal Departments to calculate allocations of homeless services funding. The data received through the PIT Count will help our local community to identify needs and develop planning to engage and support those persons experiencing homelessness throughout Mendocino County.

The Mendocino County Homeless Services Continuum of Care is a group of agencies that consist of service providers, non-profits, faith-based organizations, community members, and Mendocino County staff. These individuals and agencies come together to help address the needs of those who are experiencing homelessness or are at-risk of homelessness. This undertaking requires a lot of individuals performing many different tasks in preparation for this event, as well as surveying individuals and families experiencing homelessness throughout Mendocino County. We need volunteers to count along the Coast as well as Southern and Northern Inland portions of Mendocino County.

If you would like to volunteer, please sign up at https://Mendocino.PointInTime.info/. If you have questions or would like further information, please contact Veronica Wilson at hometeam@mendocinocounty.org or (707) 468-7071.

  1. 🙏And there she is again. The lady in the infamous Daniel Steele picture.

    I hope and pray that she is doing much better now and that she was helped by all the housing grant money this county has received.

    I want to add that it doesn’t matter who you are, where you’ve been, what you’ve done, you are loved.

    ✝️ John 3:16
    For God so loved the world, He gave His only begotten Son, so that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
    *King James Version
    Holy Bible

    Jesus Christ loves you.
    He’s always just a prayer away. You’re never alone.

    I pray that God Bless all who are reading this.
