Project Homeless Connect Seeking Volunteers

March 21, 2011

Project Homeless Connect Fort Collins was started in 2009 through a partnership between Homeward 2020 (Fort Collins' 10 year plan to end Homelessness) and CSU's office of Student Leadership, Involvement and Community Engagement (SLiCE).

Volunteer to help those in need

Project Homeless Connect is a one-day event that provides individuals and families currently experiencing homelessness with access to vital services such as:

  • rapid re-housing
  • basic medical exams
  • legal advice

It’s a one-stop shop for assistance that helps families stop struggling and paves the way for their success.

This year, Project Homeless Connect will take place on Friday, Apr. 15, from 7 a.m.-noon at the Northside Aztlan Community Center in Old Town.

In the spring of 2010 the first annual Project Homeless Connect was held at the University Center of the Arts in Fort Collins.

In its inaugural year, Project Homeless Connect brought together over 200 clients, 200 volunteers, and over 20 non-profit and government agencies from the Fort Collins area. Due to word of mouth, we are expecting even more clients to attend this year's event.

Project Homeless Connect matches one volunteer with one client the day of the event. The role of the volunteer is to guide the client through services, schedule appointments, etc.  Volunteers can register online or contact us send us an email for more information.
