Project Connect Returns to Hargraves Center
The 10th Project Connect will be held on Thursday, Oct. 19, 2017, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Hargraves Community Center located at 216 North Roberson St., Chapel Hill.
Project Connect is a one-day, one-stop service event to connect people experiencing, or at risk of experiencing, homelessness with a broad range of services including housing, employment, physical and mental health care, veterans’ and social service benefits, legal services, and more.
Volunteer time-slots are available the evening on Wednesday, Oct. 18 and on Thursday Oct. 19 – community members are encouraged to sign up online to volunteer. The Partnership is also soliciting donations to help with the event – items in the giveaway bags and food items. Please find out more and sign up on the Partnership to End Homelessness website:
“Project Connect provides a wide range of assistance in one location with a tremendous outpouring of respect and hospitality,” said Corey Root, Orange County Homeless Programs Coordinator. “The event enables service agencies to efficiently reach many people in a single day, and it educates the community about the issues of homelessness.”
