Colorado Springs, Colo. (Oct 8, 2013) — The Association of Gospel Rescue Missions (AGRM) will conduct its annual Snapshot Survey on Thursday, October 17. Each year, nearly 20,000 individuals are surveyed who are utilizing emergency shelter, supportive services, or addiction recovery programs of AGRM member missions.
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 AGRM provides. Missions can complete the survey on the one day most convenient for them between Monday, October 14 and Sunday, October 20.
