Annually, on one of the coldest nights of the year, concerned citizens volunteer to conduct a careful count of every person experiencing homelessness. This count provides a snapshot of the adults and children who are experiencing homelessness in DC and across the country. As Jews we are compelled to act for justice that addresses the causes and effects of poverty. Avodah is acting locally in DC to move the needle on homelessness, a pervasive issue in our city. The Point-in-Time Count combines many methods of social change that the Avodah Service Corps program teaches–direct service, policy, and advocacy. We ask that you join us in this effort!
