The Metropolitan Homelessness Commission in Nashville will once again host Project Homeless Connect. This event will be held on Wednesday, Dec. 8 from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. at The Municipal Auditorium.

Project Homeless Connect brings together a comprehensive array of services for the homeless at one convenient location. Homeless people, and those at risk of becoming homeless, will be able to receive much-needed help with things like: housing and job applications; official State I. D.s required for employment; medical, dental, eye, and foot care; haircuts; clothing; and more.

The event also helps participants contact long lost family members, obtain identification and fill out applications for housing opportunities. 

In December 2009, a collaboration of more than 60 service providers and 700 volunteers provided 9,500 services to at least 1,558 homeless individuals and families. PHC 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 from service providers and volunteers.
