The City of Santa Monica is gearing up for next year's homeless count, which will take place on Jan. 25, 2023, and is seeking volunteers to assist with the process. Each year, municipalities across the country including Santa Monica send volunteers out onto the streets at night to do a point-in-time count of people sleeping outdoors and in vehicles and makeshift shelters. The annual count is used to help allocate funding and determine services, as well as provide the federal government with as accurate a number as possible of individuals sleeping outside, specifically during the winter.
