The volunteers were out until 3 a.m., helping the city count and provide services to homeless people living on the streets of New York.

Gartner associates have participated in the event in recent years. “HOPE helps the DHS best project service needs and allocate resources for our most vulnerable population,” explained Justine Petcoff, Consultant, DBP North America. “We canvassed parks, subways and other public spaces to estimate the number of people who are street homeless.”
