Why Project Homeless Connect

DSC_0042On any given night in Pierce County 2000 people experience homelessness. This number includes babies, children, teens, and adults. They are victims of domestic violence, people with disabilities, veterans, and senior citizens.

Pierce County residents want better lives for their neighbors. We believe that hard working families should be able to go home to a safe, warm place. We believe that our veterans deserve the security of a place to live. We believe our children should know where they will sleep tonight.

Project Homeless Connect provides a starting place on the journey back to safety, stability, health, and hope. Project Homeless Connect reduces the duration of homelessness by providing services that address the basic needs; basic medical and dental care, access to education, employment and benefits systems, chemical dependency assessments, flu shots, haircuts, and much more – all under one roof!

                                                

Project Homeless Connect brings hundreds of individuals and families experiencing homelessness or at-risk for homelessness into contact with dozens of providers and services in one location.
