Project Homeless Connect is a one-day, all-volunteer led event to connect homeless, near homeless, or those who are struggling to needed resources and services, and to raise public awareness of homelessness and the needs of those who often may go unseen. The mission of PHC is about welcoming all as neighbors into the life of the community, changing the way resources are accessed, and offering positive results for those in need.
Project Homeless Connect-Hastings will be 10-4pm, Thursday, June 28 at First St Paul’s Lutheran. Last year we served 428 guests, including 287 children. This year we anticipate serving over 450.
Volunteers are the foundation of our event! Last year we had 200+ volunteers; we anticipate needing 225 for this year.
