In Springfield, we’re gearing up for Project Homeless Connect, scheduled for Sept. 29 at the MassMutual Center in downtown Springfield. PHC is a one-day event that brings together all the services and benefits that can help people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness achieve housing stability. In addition, there is a significant component of hospitality and community, where we send the message to people who are stuggling that they are part of us and we want to walk with them through their struggles.
This year, we expect to devote a big component of the event to families facing homelessness.
We usually have more than 80 provider agencies that collaborate to meet needs on the day of the event. If you would like to be a provider agency, please complete and turn in a registration form.
The event pairs volunteers one-on-one with individuals or families experiencing homelessness. If you would like to volunteer for the event, please contact the volunteer coordinatot, Chris Abro, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
