Volunteer Opportunities

Arvada & Belmar Libraries – Survey Administrators

The library is looking for volunteers who are warm, compassionate, and wanting to make a connection with someone experiencing homelessness this winter. In advance of our Point in Time Survey Party on January 29th, volunteers will be trained to administer HUD’s Point in Time survey to collect community data about the places our neighbors experiencing homelessness stay at night. The results are used to help the county get funding for housing and other resources service providers need. The library’s event on January 29th focuses on both the data and compassion – we will have food and gifts for the people we survey at the party as our way of saying “Everyone Counts.” 

If you’re interested in helping out with the Point in Time Survey, contact Debby Ridgell, Volunteer Program Coordinator, or 303-275-2212.
