OSWEGO, NY – Oswego County Opportunities recently joined a number of community partners in conducting its annual Point In Time Canvassing.
The purpose of Point In Time, a nationwide initiative, is to document and count instances of homelessness.
In Oswego County, approximately 50 volunteers representing OCO, Oswego County DSS, Farnham, the Oswego City-County Youth Bureau, and others canvassed areas in each of Oswego County’s nine school districts.
“It was wonderful to have so many enthusiastic volunteers. Our Point In Time Canvassing was also a great opportunity for outreach as we talked to businesses and community partners and shared with them information about homelessness in Oswego County and how to connect someone to services if they are in need,” said OCO Planning Coordinator Kristin LaBarge.
