Project Homeless Connect matches clients with volunteers in a one-of-a-kind partnership to assist chronically homeless adults connect to as many on-site services as possible in one day. Provided services included general healthcare, flu shots, dental and vision screenings, mental health interviews, case management, haircuts, clothing, employment resources (including for veterans), shelter and housing assessments, and much more. The SON volunteers were trained to assist clients navigate the array of services based upon priorities established by the client. The goal for the event is to eliminate some of the barriers people experience as they seek to access the very services that might help them start the return journey to stable lives. Erin Carr, M.Ed., NCC, academic advisor in the Office of Enrollment and Student Services said, “This was my third year and it’s a very eye opening and humbling experience. I encourage everyone to get involved next year!”
