Virginia-based Internet load board company Getloaded employees recently donated their time to Homeward’s Point in Time Count, a twice-yearly study designed to accurately count the Richmond region’s homeless individuals and families.

“After volunteering as navigators with Project Homeless Connect last November, our employees were eager to stay involved with Homeward and decided as a team to sign up for the Winter 2012 Point in Time Count,” says Fergus Caldicott, general manager at Getloaded.

Getloaded volunteers worked directly with participants, surveying them to gain better understanding of their specific needs and challenges. Homeward combines this information and the population count to ensure adequate funding and support for vulnerable community residents.
