PathStone Corporation is honored toserve as the host organization for the community wide collaboration of human service organizations who have partnered together to implement Project Homeless Connect along with the numerous groups and individuals supporting this project.

 

PathStone Corporation and the coalition are committed to raising $25,000.

 

Stuart J. Mitchell, President/CEO of PathStone Corporation, will pedal his bike 200 miles in 2 days on the Sea Way Trail beginning September 26, 2014 to raise awareness and funds for Project Homeless Connect Rochester.

 

Project Homeless Connect Rochester’s mission is to rally the community and local service providers to support and create lasting solutions for homeless Rochesterians by organizing a one day “one-stop shop” event, October 21, 2014 at the Blue Cross Arena, serving people who are homeless or are at risk of becoming homeless.

 

Project Homeless Connect goals:

To provide information and a connection to essential ongoing services such as: housing, employment, government benefits, veterans benefits, legal services.
To engage and increase the collaborative involvement of homeless consumers, business, human service community and individual volunteers to work together and create lasting solutions to homelessness.
To leverage private, corporate and foundation resources to increase housing options and build service capacity on behalf of homeless Rochesterians.
In 2013, Project Homeless Connect provided an opportunity for community volunteers to partner with a vast array of homeless service providers to introduce more than 650 people to essential and much needed resources.

 

Birth Certificate and Non-Driver ID’s are provided and paid for by Project Homeless Connect, which allows participants the basic necessity to access services. Additionally, legal assistance, health and medical screenings (which include HIV tests, flu shots, dental cleaning), mental health assessments, veteran services, housing services (which include referrals and shelter options), hair cuts, services for youth, substance abuse recovery services and employment information is also provided. Participants are welcomed and assigned a volunteer escort. The escort assists the participant in navigating the array of services allowing the participant to access the services which will benefit him/her the most. Breakfast and lunch is provided and each participant receives a winter coat.

 

Stuart is ready to pedal!!!
