SLiCE Engagement Programs:
Project Homeless Connect

Project Homeless Connect 2020 is on Friday, April 10, from 7am-1:30pm at the Aztlan Community Center (112 E Willow Street, Fort Collins, CO)! We are seeking volunteers for the event!

Project Homeless Connect is a one-day event that provides individuals and families currently experiencing homelessness or a risk of experiencing homelessness with access to vital services such as rapid housing and employment support, basic medical exams, ID/legal service, and much more.

Volunteers for Project Homeless Connect are matched with individuals or families to help them navigate the available services at the event. All volunteers receive a free t-shirt, a 1-hour volunteer training, and free transportation to/from the event from the CSU transit center. We hope you join us for this incredible opportunity. Please sign up to volunteer at https://ramlink.campuslabs.com/engage/submitter/form/start/206213 .

Volunteers can sign up to work one or both of two volunteer shift times on Friday, April 10 (7:50am-10:30am; 10:30am-1:30pm). For more information, please contact Emily Ambrose at emily.ambrose@colostate.edu or visit our website at https://lsc.colostate.edu/slice/slice-engagement/project-homeless-connect/

Community Engagement with SLiCE: Project Homeless Connect

Project Homeless Connect Fort Collins was started in 2009 through a partnership between Homeward 2020, Fort Collins’ 10 year plan to end Homelessness and Colorado State University’s office of Student Leadership, Involvement and Community Engagement (SLiCE). In the spring of 2010 the first annual Project Homeless Connect was held at the University Center of the Arts in Fort Collins. In its inaugural year Project Homeless Connect brought together over 200 clients, 200 volunteers, and over 20 non-profit and government agencies from the Fort Collins area.
