Project Homeless Connect Event

Project Homeless Connect is a one-day, one-stop event designed to provide housing, services, and hospitality in a convenient forum directly to people experiencing homelessness. 

On any given night, over 1,000 people are homeless in Kings and Tulare counties alone. They may be homeless because of an untreated mental illness, domestic violence, addiction issues or a financial crisis.  People who experience homelessness often feel alienated and alone.  

Every January, the Kings/Tulare Homeless Alliance hosts four simultaneous Project Homeless Connect (PHC) events in Hanford, Porterville, Tulare and Visalia. The event connects those who are homeless or near homeless with a wide variety of immediate, on-site services and support for unmet needs. Some of the services include: veterinary care, employment, medical, dental, eye care, family support services, child care, domestic violence, HIV testing, DMV IDs, legal, housing, veterans, lunches, behavioral health, substance abuse services, and much more.

Project Homeless Connect is a nationwide best practice model for helping the homeless community by bringing together services to meet unmet needs in a one-stop, convenient venue.  The model has been recognized by the U.S. Interagency Council on Homelessness (USICH) and has been replicated in nearly 300 cities throughout the United States.  

Our next Project Homeless Connect will take place January 25, 2018.  Please click to on the Save the Date Flyer for more information on times, dates, and locations for each venue.
