Project Homeless Connect

Brings together city agencies, nonprofits, private sector and volunteers to improve the quality of life of San Franciscans.

Description:

In 2004, the San Francisco Department of Public Health created Project Homeless Connect as a way to bring necessary services to the homeless. Today, over 1,000 community volunteers partner with government agencies, nonprofits and the private sector every two months to provide a single location with comprehensive health and human services for homeless San Franciscans. During PHC's events, participants are able to acccomplish in one day what might normally take eight months. Hundreds of corporations, nonprofits, and government agencies provide PHC and its clients with services such as dental care, eyeglasses, family support, food, HIV testing, housing, hygiene products, medical care, mental health services, substance abuse treatment, SSI benefits, legal advice, California identification cards, voice mail, employment counseling and job placement, wheelchair repair, methadone, needle exchange and more. In response to the changing needs of the homeless and low-income population, PHC continues to reshape its outreach stategy and improve available services. Recent modifications have included events specifically designed for veterans, families, and children.
