Project Homeless Connect
YHHAP's Project Homeless Connect (PHC) is a student-run biannual fair tasked with providing important and otherwise inaccessible services to the homeless community in New Haven. Through partnerships with local organizations, we facilitate access to haircuts, dental care, STD testing, health counseling, and more, all free of charge. The fair includes a warm meal, performances from Yale groups, and a supportive atmosphere. Organizations able to offer more long-term support and individualized assistance are also present to raise an awareness of their services among those in need.
In the past, PHC has been hosted by the St. Paul and St. James Episcopal Church, or held on the New Haven Green. If you know of any local organizations that would like to partner with PHC and contribute to the fair, do not hesitate to be in touch. Together, we can offer basic but deeply impactful services where the need is greatest. In doing so, we can support those in times of hardship.
