Project_Homeless_Connect
The Nevada Homeless Alliance’s signature outreach event is Project Homeless Connect, a service and resource fair for the homeless and low income. Services provided aim to break down barriers to housing and self sufficiency, including but not limited to shelter, health care, legal issues, job readiness, food and behavioral health. Since its establishment, the NHA has convened community partners in the planning and execution of 24 Project Homeless Connects. In the last five years alone, these events have assisted more than 15,000 homeless clients in accessing resources and services. PHC includes more than 100 service providers and 600 community volunteers who serve more than 3,000 individuals per event. In 2017, we will be holding PHC on November 14th at Cashman Center.
