Project Connect Orange County
The 5th annual Project Connect will be held on Thursday, October 13, 2011 from 9:00 AM to 3:30 PM at Hargraves Community Center in Chapel Hill in Orange County.
Project Connect is a one-day, one-stop center to provide people experiencing-or at risk of experiencing homelessness with a broad range of services including housing, employment, health and dental care, mental health care, veterans' and social service benefits, legal services, and more.
Formerly called Project Homeless Connect, event coordinators changed the name this year to reach out to more community members in need of services in an effort to prevent homelessness.

Donate to Project Connect!
Project Connect is possible because of the generosity of the entire community. Monetary donations are graciously accepted and will go towards event costs such as equipment rentals and supplies. All donations are tax deductible.
In 2011, donations will also help launch a very unique and meaningful new program to help homeless individuals in our community connect with employers. Funds will go towards JOB PARTNERS through the Orange County Partnership to End Homelessness to help with assessment tests, background checks, and career portfolios.
