Wilder Research Center conducts a study of homelessness in Minnesota every three years. The study is important for identifying some of the causes, effects, and circumstances of homelessness in Minnesota. The information gathered is used to guide program development and to support requests for funding at the federal, state and local levels.

Volunteers are needed specifically in Scott and Carver Counties to conduct face-to-face interviews with households who may be unsheltered.  If you are unable to interview in Scott or Carver County or would prefer doing an interview in a shelter or transitional housing program, please sign-up via Wilder Research directly.

DATE: Thursday, October 25, 2018

TIME: 8am – 8pm

Training is provided for volunteers and a $10 stipend is given to households who are interviewed. Click here to sign up for the Wilder Training, or on the logo above to sign up for a time that works with your schedule.  This training would include areas outside of Scott and Carver counties.


Wednesday, October 17th 11:00am – 1:00pm

712 Canterbury Rd S

A self-guided training is available for those who have participated in past studies and will be posted here toward the end of September.
