2013 Neighborhood Homeless Street Count

Join BRIDGEMEN for a once-a-year opportunity as we walk through our neighborhoods (including Castro, Noe, and Mission) to assist with the 2013 Neighborhood Homeless Street Count.

This important annual street count is used as a basis for major grants, federal/state funding and used to allocate resources for the homeless throughout San Francisco.

BRIDGEMEN will gather together between 6:45pm and 7:00pm. Promptly at 7:00pm we'll receive a one-hour group training from the SFPD and the Department of Public Health on homelessness. Then we'll break into teams to walk, bike or drive (if you have a car) over an assigned 4-by-4 block route from 8:00pm to approximately 11:00pm. This is your chance to learn more about the homeless in SF and spend 3-4 hours making a difference in their lives.

Afterwards you are invited to warm up with us at the Bare Chest Calendar semi-finals at The Powerhouse, a fundraiser for the AIDS Emergency Fund and Project Inform, where BRIDGEMAN Ross is a contender! Jay will have free access passes and we'll coordinate plans to meet up before we deploy to the neighborhoods.

**Please note: This is a rain or shine event so please dress appropriately. If you're interested but can only volunteer for part of the evening please let us know.

    Thanks for coming everyone! Nice to meet you Shawn. Our three groups covered the Castro and immediate area. It was eye-opening. We counted 24 homeless people in the area that was entirely in the Castro. We all finished up early and were able to get to the Powerhouse in time to see Ross's victory. :)

    I'm down for new experiences and would love to help.. so i'm there. I do not drive or bike so i will be walking. Just to clarify you guys will be meeting on the corner of 15th and Julian st? Near a latino center? That is what Google maps says?

      That's right. It's next to/at Centro Latino:[masked]th Street. I'll be out front until 7:00 with my BRIDGEMEN hat on. Looking forward to meeting you Jack. -Jay

    I'm sorry to take myself off the list so last minute, but I am still feeling really flu-y this morning. I hope you guys have a fun time and that you have enough people:)

    Hi guys. If you have a flashlight, please bring it with you if possible. There will some on-site, so it's totally cool if you can't bring one. :)

    Oh, any of your non-BRIDGEMEN friends volunteering with us can just show up. Homeless Connect (the organizers) can use as many volunteers as possible. SEE YOU ALL THURSDAY NIGHT! :) -Jay

    Hey guys! I'll have free Bare Chest Contest passes for all BRIDGEMEN helping out with the Street Count. Some of us will finish in time to catch the contest. All of us will have plenty of time to hang out with our friends at the Powerhouse.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
