Homeless census training

An additional volunteer training session for the Jan. 28 Point In Time census of homeless men, women and children in Florida Keys is set for 10 a.m. Monday at 2221 Patterson Ave.

The Point in Time is a national survey of the homeless that allows communities to apply for funding for services and create plans to help the unsheltered. About 100 volunteers fanned out across the Keys last year for the census.
