Thousands to Participate in Citygate Network’s Snapshot Survey this February

Colorado Springs, Colo. (February 1, 2021) — Citygate Network will conduct its 31st annual Snapshot Survey on Friday, February 26. Each year, thousands of individuals are surveyed who are utilizing emergency shelter, supportive services, or addiction recovery programs of Citygate Network member missions and ministries.

The data collected through the Snapshot Survey provides local and national media with a demographic snapshot of homelessness and poverty in communities across North America, and is the most requested and used piece of information Citygate Network provides. Missions can complete the survey on the one day most convenient for them between Monday, February 8 and Friday, February 19.
