Project Homeless Connect sponsored by Metro State
On October 29th, Metro State is hosting Project Homeless Connect and we need at least 400 Metro State volunteers to staff the event. Project Homeless Event is a one-stop shop event for homeless individuals and families who are seeking services. We expect about 800 individuals who are without housing to visit the Auraria Campus for PHC to receive a whole range of services, including various social services, housing assistance, resume building, food assistance, clothing, from over 50 organizations.
In the past, Metro State volunteers have made an incredible showing at PHC. Last October, when the event was at the Pepsi Center, Metro State had the single largest contingent of volunteers--160.
Now that we are hosts, it is up to Metro State--students, faculty, and staff--to make this event successful. Ask your professors, classmates, supervisors, and colleagues to volunteer with you. Some classes, for instance, are volunteering as a group, as well as some offices.
