[ARCHIVED] Project Homless Connect to be Held September 2, 2010

The Missouri Valley Coalition for Homeless People (MVCHP) will host Project Homeless Connect on September 2, 2010, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Salvation Army, located at 601 South Washington, Bismarck.

Project Homeless Connect is a one-day, one-stop event that brings service providers, community volunteers and community sponsors together in a welcoming, non-judgmental consumer-centered environment. Focusing on public awareness, Project Homeless Connect emphasizes a way to offer people a path toward ending and/or preventing their homelessness.

Project Homeless Connect will take place during the week of September 1-4, 2010, which has been proclaimed as Homeless or Near Homeless Awareness Week by Mandan mayor Tim Helbling and Bismarck mayor John Warford.

In 2009, Project Homeless Connect, in conjunction with Central Dakota Veterans Stand Down served 476 people, including 135 who were military veterans. The 2010 event has the potential to positively impact those experiencing homelessness or at risk of homelessness or in basic needs.

For more information on Project Homeless Connect, please contact MVCHP executive director Miranda Albers at mvchp@rmhh.org or MVCHP president Heidi Selby at 701.328.8870.
