Project Homeless Connect
- Baltimore Convention Center
Project Homeless Connect is a national model for helping the homeless community by bringing together services to meet every need in the same place at the same time. This model has been recognzied by the U.S. Intragency Council on Homelessness (USICH) and has been replicated in nearly 300 cities throughout the United States.
This event provides on-site services for the local homeless community, such as medical exams and screenings, haircuts, legal advice, identification, access to healthy food and more. Participating homeless and at-risk individuals and families are paired with a volunteer guide who helps participants navigate the various services and share the experience of the event.
Last year, nearly 50 UB students volunteered at Project Homeless Connect.
This year, Project Homeless Connect is taking place at the Baltimore Convention Center on October 2, 2014 from 9:30am-5:30pm.
All volunteers must watch a 30 minute training video and read through the volunteer packet. This can be done independently, or on campus at UB on September 25, 2014 from 4pm-5pm in the Bogomolny Room on the 5th floor of the Student Center.
