Project Connect provides a one day opportunity to deliver service to people in our community. It is for people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness, such as people living paycheck to paycheck, living on the street, in shelters or surfing between family and friends because they are unable to find affordable housing. Project Connect began in 2004 in San Francisco, and has grown into an international best practice. This program has shown positive results in getting people connected in the community and into safe, permanent, affordable housing. Lethbridge has been successfully offering Project Connect twice each year since 2009. This one day opportunity allows individuals access to many different support services that they may not have had the opportunity to access.
Project Connect is looking for volunteers that can greet people, man the many stations, help with set-up and take down, and provide a caring and positive attitude toward the individuals accessing services.
For more information or to volunteer, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Next Project Connect is on Saturday, March 28th from 10:00am - 3:00pm in the Fritz Sick Memorial Gym (420 - 11th Street South, Lethbridge).NEW & FAMILIAR FACES WELCOME!
