      Project Homeless Connect 2019 Volunteers

      Project Homeless Connect matches clients with volunteers in a one-of-a-kind partnership to assist chronically homeless adults connect to as many on-site services as possible in one day. To do this more than 40 service providers move their operations to a single location for a day, providing dedicated healthcare, dental and vision screenings, mental health interviews, case management, social security applications, identification services, employment resources (including for veterans), shelter and housing assessments, and much more.  The impact of the Richmond PHC is multi-faceted: First and foremost, where there are usually lengthy barriers facing people trying to get the help they need to get off the streets, Project Homeless Connect provides immediate access to the services that help people resolve their homelessness. Secondly, more than 40 service providers coordinate with each other at the event to make an even bigger impact in their community. Lastly, it introduces hundreds of volunteers to the tangible needs of people in our community, thereby inspiring all of us to take action beyond this one day event. The goal for the event, and its high level of volunteer involvement, is to eliminate some of the barriers people experience as they seek to access the very services that might help them start the journey to return to stable lives. This year, all training will be done in advance through webinars. Homeward welcomes the challenge of managing this event every year, precisely because of the consistent results it produces for people living on the streets. However, this is a large undertaking for any organization, and it equates to a 13th month in Homeward’s budget. We welcome your support in making this year’s event as impactful as our previous events. Make your donation go 10% further this year - When you make your donation through Birdies for Charity Presented by TowneBank, we receive an additional 10% of the total pledged.
