Approximately twelve (12) CCO volunteers performed the 2019 Point-In-Time Count with Housing Solutions for the Southwest and other organizations.
Here are Community Compassion Outreach, Inc., results from the Walmart area, trails, Durango Library, and various places:
Thirty (30) adults
Two (2) youth
Both groups surveyed say they slept in an uninhabitable place (car, tent, or in the woods) on the night of January 29, 2019.
This count is only a small part of the HUD Balance of State, La Plata County. We look forward to the final count when it is released by HUD.
Housing Solutions for the Southwest is conducting the HUD Point-in-Time (PIT) survey of unsheltered individuals and families on the night of January 29, 2019.
PIT Survey is very important for federal and state funds needed for homeless services in the City of Durango and La Plata County.
FUNDS NEEDED FOR VITAL SERVICES PROVIDED TO THE UNSHELTERED Medical, Dental, Mental Healthcare, Housing, Food/Meals require much-needed funds to meet the needs of people experiencing homelessness. The Unhoused often don’t know there are services available to them.
Your anonymity is protected because we ask only the first 3 letters of your first & last name.
CCO’s volunteers will be throughout north Main, Walmart, Recreation Center, City Market North, Schneider Park, and bus stops to survey people who slept in tents, cars, couch-surfing, and other uninhabitable spaces on Tuesday, January 29th.
CCO and other groups are assisting HSS with surveys on the following days (any time during those days). We ask if a person was homeless on the night of Tuesday 1/29/2019:
Survey forms will be provided. If you would like to join our volunteers, please reach out to Donna Mae at ExecDirector@CCOHome.org.
