Project Homeless Connect

Connect with your community and LIVE UNITED to help homeless families.

Project Homeless Connect eliminates the barriers that families often face in accessing services to get them back on their feet, bringing together vital resources ranging from medical and dental care to housing and employment resources – all in one place at one time.

The impact

Families who are experiencing homelessness often do not have access to basic necessities like hygiene and health services, legal support, and employment counseling. It can be overwhelming and difficult for them to get from place to place to access so many different services. Project Homeless Connect makes this easier, providing families with the tools they need to become successful.

At the event, homeless and at-risk participants are paired with a volunteer guide who travels with the participant throughout the event, helps them access services and gets to know them over the course of the day. The personal connection formed is impactful for both the guide and the participant, creating community connections, increasing civic engagement and providing vital resources.

HOW YOU CAN HELP
