What is Project HOPE? The Homeless Outreach Population Estimate
(HOPE) is an annual survey to assess the number of individuals
living in New York City's public spaces. On the night of HOPE,
thousands of volunteers are teamed up and sent out to survey New
York's streets, subways and parks. Conducted by the New York City
Department of Homeless Services (DHS), HOPE is a point-in-time
estimate of unsheltered individuals that helps the City evaluate
its outreach programs and providers and measure its progress.
Last year, St. John's sent over 150 student volunteers out into the
city to help in this effort. This year our goal is to register over
200! Help us reach this goal and DHS’s goal of provided necessary
services to the city’s homeless population.
