Project Homeless Connect

The Convention Center will host Project Homeless Connect on Monday, Dec. 10. This is a one-day, one-stop shop that delivers real services to people experiencing real homelessness in our community. It brings together faith communities, government, businesses, neighborhood groups, service providers and consumers to develop new and creative ways to end homelessness.

Homeless men, women, children and youth are welcomed for a variety of resources, such as housing providers, employment specialists, medical care, mental health care, benefits specialists, eye doctors, haircuts, transportation assistance, food and clothing.
