Project Homeless Connect

Project Homeless Connect is a one-day event on April 10th 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.

Bohemian Foundation; Homeward Alliance; Outreach Fort Collins; and Colorado State University Student Leadership, Involvement and Community Engagement (SLiCE) office co-produce the event with support from United Way of Larimer County and the City of Fort Collins Recreation Department. The co-producers of Project Homeless Connect share the conviction that homelessness is a community-wide issue that needs community-wide solutions.
