Project Connect Annual Event Helping the Homeless in St. Cloud
ST. CLOUD (WJON News) – Homeless and at-risk residents of central Minnesota will have the opportunity to get major help at an event in St. Cloud this week.
The 13th annual Project Connect event will take place Thursday at the River’s Edge Convention Center. The event helps people get back on their feet by offering services from various government and non-profit organizations in one place.
People can get help that includes legal advice, veterans services, mental health resources, disability services, financial counseling and housing services. Plus, people who attend can get more immediate help in the form of haircuts, blood pressure tests, vaccinations, doctor visits, and winter gear for the outdoors.
The free one-stop shop is sponsored by Tri-CAP and operates from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Free lunch and door prizes will also be available.
The Homeless Connect project was launched in San Francisco in 2004 and is now taking place in cities across the country.
