A Hand Up. Not A Hand Out.

Homelessness and the risk of becoming homeless is a struggle that many people in our communities are dealing with daily.

Project Homeless Connect is a ONE-DAY, ONE-STOP event that offers people who are experiencing homelessness or who are at risk of becoming homeless access to services offered by government, nonprofits and other agencies. 

By offering an opportunity for individuals and families to access services and information, a ray of hope and prosperity shines for all of us.
