Project Homeless Connect Event
One Day. One Stop. One Community.
On Wednesday, February 29th, 2012, the “Project Homeless Connect” event took place in Pitt County at the Greenville Convention Center. This event was part of the 10-Year Plan to End Chronic Homelessness, a community-wide initiative to greatly reduce the incidence of homelessness and eliminate chronic homelessness within 10 years.
Project Homeless Connect was a one-day, one-stop event to serve people experiencing, or at risk of experiencing, homelessness in Pitt County. Services included health and dental screenings and care, mental health services, Veterans’ services, legal services, employment and education resources, housing resources, personal grooming services, and more.
Project Homeless Connect makes a powerful impact on homeless people's lives by providing a wide range of assistance in one location and by the outpouring of respect and hospitality. It enables service agencies to efficiently reach many people in a single day and to coordinate their services together. At the same time, it educates the community about the issues surrounding homelessness while allowing individual community members to contribute their efforts, talents, and compassion.
Project Homeless Connect was funded in part from a federal Community Development Block Grant with the City of Greenville and is part of the 10-Year Plan to End Chronic Homelessness in Pitt County.
