Description
Project Homeless Connect is an annual, one-day event that is open to people of all ages who are experiencing homelessness – or facing housing instability.  During this one day event guests are able to access an array of services ranging from ID services, housing services, resume workshops, vision check and healthcare to veterans services, childcare, petcare and much more. We expect to see 1,000 guests at this years event and need nearly as many volunteers to make the day a success. Please join us on November 15th as we help our most vulnerable population access the resources they need to become self-sufficient for themselves and their families.

Hear first hand from last year's volunteers what Project Homeless Connect is all about.
