A reminder that Project Homeless Connect is at a new location this year, Evergreen Middle School. Here’s a re-cap of what happened last year at the event from Neil Parekh at United Way of Snohomish County…

Project Homeless Connect (PHC) is an annual, one-day event that brings together, in a single location, a wide variety of community volunteers and services for individuals and families experiencing homelessness. Direct services are provided on site to help combat homelessness and related issues.
More than 1200 individuals participated in last year’s event.
Popular services include: veterans’ benefits counseling, medical and dental appointments, pet care, mental health support, haircuts, a hot meal and housing information.
