Description
PLEASE NOTE: This is a one day event with most of the volunteer activities taking place on November 3rd. The only help needed on November 2nd is for set-up of the event.

Project Homeless Connect is a free resource fair for homeless and at-risk individuals and families. During this one day event clients are able to access an array of services ranging from ID services, housing services, resume workshops, clothing banks, vision check and healthcare to veterans services, childcare, petcare and much more. We expect to see 1,000 clients at this years event and need nearly as many volunteers to make the day a success. Please join us on November 3rd as we help our most vulnerable population access the resources they need to become self-sufficient for themselves and their families.

All volunteers are encouraged to attend an  in-person training prior to the event or attend a training the morning of the event.  Below are the following in-person training opportunities.

- October 12, 12:00 - 1:00 PM, Mile High United Way - PCL Conference Room
