Project Homeless Connect Rochester is a one-day, “one-stop shop” event on September 20, 2013 serving people who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless.

The event provides a hot meal and a warm coat along with other valuable community linkages and services with the goal of making affordable housing accessible and sustainable.  We expect to serve over 900 people September 20, and we need YOUR help!

The event’s goal is to provide information and a connection to essential, ongoing services, such as housing, employment, government benefits, veterans’ benefits, legal services and many other vital services.

The mission of Project Homeless Connect is to rally our community to support and create lasting solutions for homeless individuals.
