The mission of Project Homeless Connect is to build community, shift mindsets around homelessness through personal experience and connection, and provide critical resources to individuals experiencing homeless in an easy to access environment.
United Way NCA brings together local providers to deliver medical services, housing assessments, employment services and much more to over 1,000 participants to date. Services that are provided to our participants include:
We match each participant with a volunteer GUIDE who remains with and helps the individual during the event. In 2017, we engaged more than 300 volunteers, 28 translators and over 20 schools and companies in our work. In one day, participants gain access to services that might otherwise take months.
Save the date for Project Homeless Connect 2018: Thursday, September 20 at the D.C. Armory.
Overflowing with excitement, Daniel told us, “This is a place where people actually care for one another. It’s something I’ve never seen in my life. Everyone needs to be connected to this.“When I woke up this morning, I had no direction or guidance in my life. Now, I feel I’m exactly where I needed to be.”
