About Project Homeless Connect

In the City of Milwaukee, nearly 1,400 people are experiencing homelessness. Approximately 1 in 3 people live in poverty in Milwaukee, making it difficult to attain and hold stable housing. Research shows that people experiencing homelessness have higher rates of acute and chronic illness. Further, children who experience homelessness are more likely to struggle with learning and developmental disabilities.

Milwaukee Project Homeless Connect is a one day; one-stop shop event on Thursday, October 19 from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. aimed at bringing multiple resources and services under one roof to better serve people experiencing homelessness. A variety of resources will be available. Services offered in past years have included:

  • Resource fair
  • Haircuts
  • Dentistry
  • Assessments for entry into housing programs throughout the County
  • Hygiene kits
  • Clothing
