Project Homeless Connect will have close to 50 service providers to deliver immediate resources to people in need. These include haircuts and foot massages, and health and wellness services like flu shots, veteran support, housing assistance, Permanent Fund Dividend and voter registration, and more. The event is free and open to all; breakfast and lunch will be provided. Donations such as gift cards, new white and wool socks, hats and gloves (adult men and women sizes) are being accepted. These items can be dropped off at Gruening Park Apartments, 1800 Northwood Drive. Please contact Tamara Rowcroft or Shari Partin at 780-4500.
Engagement with unaccompanied youth under the age of 25 experiencing homelessness is an emphasis this year. Gift cards for a free pizza will be available for unaccompanied youth that participate.

The first step for a participant at Project Homeless Connect is to participate in the annual Point In Time (PIT) Homeless Count where communities across the country survey individuals experiencing homelessness. The PIT count is organized by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. Information gathered during the PIT Count is used to make federal funding decisions and for homeless assistance program development. Statewide resources for the PIT Count, including video training and survey guides, can be found on the Institute for Community Alliances website.
Volunteers that have signed up to administer surveys are asked to show up at the JACC at 8:15 a.m. on the day of the event for refresher training. Please contact Chief Housing Officer Scott Ciambor at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions. Information on previous counts and additional homeless information is available on the CBJ Housing Programs webpage.
For more information, contact CBJ Chief Housing Officer Scott Ciambor at 586-0220 or email@example.com
