Project Community Connect (previously Project Homeless Connect) is a one day, one place annual event coordinated by Peninsula Poverty Response each January.
Individuals experiencing poverty and homelessness are welcomed at the door. All attendees have the opportunity to connect to much-needed services. With the help of our community service providers and our amazing community, our neighbors access these services.
Volunteers from various businesses, religious groups, fraternities, and other organizations partner with providers of medical, legal, mental health, dental, housing, veterans’ benefits, veterinarian services and more. Guests spend the day with a guide who helped them navigate the event, ensuring they received a warm meal, a haircut if desired, but most importantly, they provide a connection with fellow community members who genuinely care about their wellbeing.
Peninsula Poverty Response will be recruiting volunteers for its seventh annual Project Homeless Connect soon! We are in need of guides, set-up & tear-down crew, food service volunteers and more.
