Everyone knows that the homeless is tough subject. People help out everyday though by going to shelters to feed, donating clothes, and giving money out of their pockets. There is one nonprofit that has gone above and beyond in order to help the less unfortunate. Project Homeless Connect KC was created to “connect homeless Kansas Citians with the care they need to move their lives forward.”
Project Homeless Connect was originally created in 2004 by the San Francisco Department of Health. Since then, it has spread over 260 cities, including Kansas City. They improve access to services such as dental care, eyeglasses, housing, food, medical care, and more. By banding together other nonprofits, corporations, and government agencies, Project Homeless Connect is able to create unity throughout organizations in the metro area.
The first annual event for Kansas City will be October 10 at Gregg/Klice Community Center at 17th and Paseo, in Kansas City, Missouri. They are still looking for organizations and volunteers to help. If you are interested in helping, please sign up online via VolunteerMark:
October 10th, 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
Many shifts available to choose from!
