Being homeless is hard. Unfortunately, so is overcoming homelessness.
The red tape someone must navigate to resolve such a crisis can seem impossible. These individuals may have the will to work hard to regain their independence – but they have no resources, no transportation. Once an individual is on the brink of homelessness or is actually homeless, it can be an extraordinary challenge to overcome. And on any given day, this challenge is being faced by thousands of people in our community.
Valley of the Sun United Way started Project Connect to bring together a broad range of vital health and human services to a single accessible location. These critical resources are provided at a different Valley location each month to broaden their reach and scope.
