Project Homeless Connect is an annual one-day event dedicated to serving individuals experiencing homelessness by providing health screenings and access to community resources in one convenient location.
This year marks the tenth year for Milwaukee County Project Homeless Connect and will be the event’s inaugural year in Waukesha County.
Founded in 2004 out of the San Francisco Department of Public Health, Project Homeless Connect is a nationally recognized model aimed at serving people experiencing homelessness with dignity and respect. Over the last several years, cities and communities across the nation have taken on the model and made it their own.
United Way is the lead organizer locally for Milwaukee and Waukesha Counties’ Project Homeless Connect and utilizes many volunteers, government organizations, corporate partners, non-profit agencies, and philanthropic groups to make an impact on individuals experiencing homelessness.
