Project Homeless Connect
What is Project Homeless Connect?
Project Homeless Connect is a one-day, one-stop event designed to provide housing, services, and hospitality in a convenient forum directly to people experiencing homelessness. Over 220 communities have held Project Homeless Connect events in the last three years and are evidence of the rapid adoption of this innovation.
How does Project Homeless Connect work?
On any given night, over 1,000 people are homeless in Kings and Tulare counties alone. They may be homeless because of an untreated mental illness, domestic violence, addiction issues or a financial crisis. People who experience homelessness often feel alienated and alone. During Project Homeless Connect, volunteers will look homeless people in the eye, ask them their name, listen to their story and ask how they can help. Will you? PHC will offer free services in many different areas. Some of the services include: veterinary care, employment, medical, dental, eye care, family support services, child care, domestic violence, HIV testing, DMV IDs, legal, housing, veterans, lunches, behavioral health, substance abuse services, and much more.
When is the next event?
The next Project Homeless Connect event is scheduled for November 1, 2012 and will take place simultaneously in Hanford, Porterville, Tulare and Visalia.
