Project Homeless Connect 2019

About

Project Homeless Connect is an annual, one-day event that is open to people of all ages who are experiencing homelessness – or facing housing instability. This year we are honors to welcome additional provides from the Veteran Stand Down. During this one day event guests are able to access an array of services ranging from ID services, housing services, resume workshops, vision check and healthcare to veterans services, childcare, petcare and much more. We expect to see 1,500 guests at this years event and need nearly as many volunteers to make the day a success. Please join us on October 10th as we help our most vulnerable population access the resources they need to become self-sufficient for themselves and their families. Location: Colorado Convention Center; 700 14th St, Denver, CO 80202

We highly encouraged all volunteers to participate in a training prior to the event.

I am signed up for training on 9/19. I didn't see a location for training in registration. Where is in-person training located?
Thank you!

What does it mean when an opportunity is locked? I would really like to help with supply handout, but it says a code is needed to register. How can I get that code? Thank you!
