Mission Statement

Project Homeless Connect strengthens and utilizes collaborations with city agencies, businesses and organizations to provide comprehensive holistic services, at special events and through continued care, for those who are at risk of becoming homeless, currently homeless or transitioning from shelter to permanent housing.

Description

Project Homeless Connect (PHC) is a national best practice model that originated in San Francisco under Mayor Gavin Newsom's leadership in October 2004. PHC is now implemented in over 260 cities across the United States. At each event, community volunteers partner with city government, nonprofits, and the private sector to provide a one-stop shop of health and human services for homeless San Franciscans. Services include medical, mental health, substance abuse, housing, dental, benefits, legal, free eyeglasses, California ID, food, clothing, wheelchair repair and more. The main goal of PHC is to transition the City's homeless off the streets and into permanent, supportive housing.
