Project Homeless Connect is a national movement that focuses on ending homelessness. The Homeless Connect model has a proven track record of success in several cities nationwide including several comparable to Milwaukee. It has helped thousands of families and individuals find pathways out of homelessness.
Milwaukee County Project Homeless Connect is a one-day, one-stop annual event where homeless people can come to access the multiple services and resources they need, all under one roof. This is much more effective and efficient than having someone travel all around the city to obtain the services and information they need. Typical resources/services provided at a Connect event include access to housing, employment, clothing, health and dental screening and contact with professional representatives who will address questions with legal, educational, mental health, and social security matters. We will also be providing hygiene kits and a hot meal along with a light snack they can take with when leaving.
The third annual Project Homeless Connect: Milwaukee event will be held on Thursday, October 18, 2012. The event will take place from 10 am until 3 pm at the Alumni Memorial Union on the Marquette University campus.
