YHHAP Board members have reinstated Project Homeless Connect (PHC) in the New Haven area. PHC events are held on a regular basis in cities around the country, such as Raleigh-Durham, NC; Nashville, TN; and Danbury, CT. (Read about Danbury’s 2010 event here.) These are one-day, client-centered events which offer everything from social and health care services to hair cuts and clothing, all under one roof. Project Homeless Connect events also occurred in the New Haven region in 2007 and 2008.
At PHC, businesses and agencies come together to provide services — like foot care and dental care — that are essential to living with dignity but are difficult for many people to access. The goal of PHC is to provide those experiencing homelessness with access to these services in one place, on one day, without barriers.
