Our mission is to provide advocacy for and services to the homeless and food insecure with compassion, dignity and empowerment.

Housing is a Human Right

There are over 1300 people who are homeless in Humboldt County, or 1% of the population. These are college students, children, veterans, and people with disabilities. Arcata House Partnership provides permanent housing, emergency shelter, case management, CalFresh outreach, and drop in services to individuals and families who are homeless in Humboldt County. We envision a community where everyone has access to safe and affordable housing.

 

The 2019 Point-in-Time (PIT) Count

Every two years people all across the United States work together to count the number of people who are homeless.  It will be happening again this month. 

Please consider volunteering for the PIT Count. We will be using the “blitz” method this year, which means each team of volunteers will be assigned to cover a specific territory. We want the teams to hit the streets at first light, 7:05 am on the morning of January 23rd and to keep surveying until you’ve covered your territory, finishing no later than noon.

There will be training for Point-in-Time Count volunteers on the following dates and times:

            1.       January 15th 5:30 – 6:30 pm at 638 West Clark St., Building E in Eureka

            2.       January 17th 6:00 – 7:00 pm at the Arcata House Annex, 501 9th St. in Arcata

            3.       January 22nd 12:00 – 1:00 pm at 638 West Clark St., Building E in Eureka  

 We will record one of the trainings and make it available online.

The 2019 Point-in-Time (PIT) Count is January 23, 2019 and volunteers are needed! Please sign up to participate in the count by clicking this link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/8TSZQ5W.
