A note from the Project Connect Steering Team: 

PC LOGO - Updated 2018.jpg

Back In early 2018, our steering committee voted to change the name of our event from Project Homeless Connect to Project Connect. We came to this decision for a variety of reasons, but our main purpose is to ensure that anyone - regardless of their housing status - feels welcome at our event.

Our goal is to connect those in need with essential, same-day services. This event is open to anyone, and we chose to change our name to reflect that. We are looking forward to an amazing 2019 event, and we hope you join us in October!
