During the annual Homeless Outreach Population Estimate (HOPE), teams of volunteers canvass select areas of the City and count the number of individuals sleeping on the street and in other public spaces, including the subway.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, HOPE 2022 will not be using volunteers this year. It will only be conducted by City staff and outreach teams. All those who have registered to volunteer will be notified via email.
