i count - I'm not just a number

Homelessness is a complex issue that exists across all demographics throughout the GTA, and understanding what homelessness looks like has been a key part of United Way’s work.

In January 2016, the Regional Municipality of York supported us in the Point-in-Time Count, the first nationally-coordinated effort to provide a snap-shot of the reality of homelessness in York Region — the number of people it impacts and how.

This year, the partnership continues with iCount on April 17th – April 20th, and once again, we’re looking for volunteer teams to conduct interviews in the community.

Together with government, community partners, and you, we’ll collect valuable data, a crucial foundation that will continue to inform our work and help ensure everyone has a place to call home.
