Project Homeless Connect is an event that allows individuals and families who are homeless or near-homeless to receive a wide variety of immediate, on-site services and support for unmet needs. Project Homeless Connect is an innovative model to address the needs of people who are homeless in cities across the United States, Canada, and Australia. The event concept began in 2004 and has been held in over 200 communities including Lincoln, Omaha, Hastings, and now Grand Island.
Project Homeless Connect will be at Evangelical Free Church and St. Leo’s Catholic Church on October 24th from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Project Homeless Connect is a free event that links people who are experiencing or are at risk of homelessness to essential services. Some of the services include: health and dental care, mental health treatment, housing resources, employment and education assistance, and much more! For more information click here.
