A note from the Project Connect Steering Team:
You may notice that we've changed our name! 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 2018 event, and we hope you join us in October!
Thank you for your support!
We're taking applications for Service Providers for our October 2018 event now. If you are interested in providing services, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org

About the Event
Project Homeless Connect is a one-day, one-stop event where individuals and families who are homeless or near homeless are able 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 all across the United States, Canada, and Australia.
The event concept began in 2004. It has been held in over 200 communities including Lincoln, Omaha, Hastings, and now Grand Island.
