Wednesday, November 15th – Project Homeless Connect
Project Homeless Connect is a one-stop-shop that connects people experiencing homelessness with the care they need to break down barriers and move forward. Project Homeless Connect collaborates with volunteers, businesses, and organizations to provide comprehensive services for those who are at risk of becoming homeless, are currently homeless or are transitioning from shelter to permanent housing. This event features basic needs such as haircuts, clothing, and toiletries, along with access to much needed services. Project Homeless Connect will take place at Our Lady of the Angels church in Taylor from 10 am – 2:15 pm.
