Description
Project Homeless Connect is a free resource fair for homeless and at-risk individuals and families. During this one day event clients are able to access an array of services ranging from ID services, housing services, resume workshops, clothing banks, vision check and healthcare to veterans services, childcare, petcare and much more. We expect to see 1,000 clients at this years event and need nearly as many volunteers to make the day a success. Please join us on September 19th as we help our most vulnerable population access the resources they need to become self-sufficient for themselves and their families.

Please enjoy our 'Thank You' video from last year that truly captures the heart and essence of this event.

Volunteer training begins this week! Please review the note in the description regarding these dates, times and locations. Reminder: If you have volunteered for Project Homeless Connect in the past you do not need to attend unless you'd like to. We highly encourage new volunteers to attend a training.

I am out of the country for everyone of your training sessions but return Sept 14. I want to come with my group from South Broadway Christian Church but we are all registering individually. Can I volunteer for anything without taking the training? I'm older and don't think tear-down would be safe for me.
