Austin EcoNetwork helps you get involved to better understand Austin’s homeless community, guide public policy, and secure grants and funding with the goal of ultimately ending homelessness in Austin.  The Ending Community Homelessness Coalition (ECHO) is hosting the annual Point In Time Count, a census of the homeless population in the Austin/Travis County area. Early in the morning of Jan 25, hundreds of volunteers will head out across Austin to count every person experiencing unsheltered homelessness.  Volunteers will survey people, asking questions about basic demographic information, health issues, and just giving people a chance to tell their story.  Volunteer here!
