The mission of Project Homeless Connect is to offer a “one stop shop” for individuals and families experiencing homelessness or at imminent risk of becoming homeless. Project Homeless Connect combines the efforts of social services, government, volunteers and businesses to bring our community together to create and promote tangible solutions to remedy the homelessness of our neighbors. PHC is a national best practice model that originated in San Francisco that has spread across the United States and abroad.
Project Homeless Connect urges service providers to be creative in their approaches to service delivery on the day of the event in order to provide as much as we can for our homeless community. Flexibility and problem solving – there will be hundreds of participants the day of the event, so thinking outside of the box is essential.
Please make sure you have thought through how a guest will move through your services. If you are referring them, do you know for sure that they can receive services where you are sending them? Will they have the ability to get there?
