Aurora Homeless Connect 2017

Tuesday, June 27th, 2017 from 8:00am to 6:00pm

About

Aurora Homeless Connect is a free resource fair for individuals and families at-risk or experiencing homelessness in the Aurora area. During this one day event, guests are able to access an array of services ranging from ID services, housing services, clothing banks, vision check, healthcare, veterans services, pet care and much more. This event will jointly be celebrating the opening of the Day Resource Center and home for our event.  We hope to see a couple hundred guests and need nearly as many volunteers to make the day a success. Please join us on June 27th as we help our most vulnerable population access the resources they need to become self-sufficient for themselves and their families.
