Project Homeless Connect (PHC) is a national initiative sponsored by the U.S. Interagency Council on Homelessness, and is now implemented in the United States as well as Canada, Puerto Rico and Australia. The mission of Project Homeless Connect is to rally service providers and volunteers to support this one-day event and create lasting solutions for individuals & families experiencing homelessness. Our communities Continuum of Care is taking the lead in organizing the event.
Why Participate? Every year, nationally, thousands of community volunteers partner with city government, non-profits and the private sector to provide a one-stop shop of health and human services for homeless individuals & families. By participating, you will be raising awareness of the services you provide in the community and extending the opportunity for the homeless to connect with these services. The goal of Project Homeless Connect is to provide easy access to services and resources that support the transition of the community’s homeless off the streets and/or shelters and into housing.
