Know someone struggling with homelessness? Tell them about this event.
The Homeless Community Network of Olmsted County is asking for your help in spreading the word about the 9th annual Project Community Connect event.
Project Community Connect
Mayo High School
Friday, January 27, 2017
10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
What: Features services and resources for people who are homeless or struggling to make ends meet. Individuals and families can get help with legal, medical, and veterans’ services, housing, employment, and photo identification.
Free haircuts and lunch will be provided at the event.
Why: Too many people in our community are living on too little and do not have essential resources available to them. This event will give them an opportunity to access many resources at one time in one convenient location
Background: The Homeless Community Network is a coalition of County public and private human service agencies as well as interested individuals who meet regularly to facilitate communication about the needs of the homeless, to monitor resources available, and to foster cooperation and coordination of activities designed to reduce the number of homeless families and individuals in the county. Project Community Connect has been an annual event since 2009.
