PROJECT HOMELESS CONNECT

MatSu United Way Homeless Connect 1200×500

When: 2023 Project Homeless Connect is tentatively scheduled for January 31, 2023
Location: Menard Sports Complex, 1001 S. Mack Dr. Wasilla, Alaska

In partnership with the Mat-Su Coalition on Housing and Homelessness, and many participating local agencies, United Way of Mat-Su is honored to provide exceptional, compassionate assistance to Valley residents experiencing housing instability every year. This event is a one-day, one-stop resource for those experiencing homelessness or housing instability, where guests may access essential services (including personal hygiene and comfort items, housing help, public health, and gently-used clothing), local resources, and receive a hot meal while engaging in fellowship with their community.

Project Homeless Connect is in need of community volunteers to help make the day a success, as well as local service providers who would like to host a table at the event. Service providers should be engaged in health and human services, and offer resources or assistance for those experiencing homelessness, housing instability, unemployment, or a related issue.

Project Homeless Connect assists guests with access to basic needs, resources and fellowship.

Interested volunteers and service providers may contact Becky Stoppa at impact@unitedwaymatsu.org to receive the 2023 vendor application and register to volunteer.
