April 20, 2023 – The Homeless Coalition of Palm Beach County, in partnership with several Palm Beach County service organizations, invites members of the community who are homeless, or in crisis, to attend Project Homeless Connect from 10 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. Thursday, April 20, 2023, at the Wells Recreation Center, 2409 Avenue H, Riviera Beach.
Project Homeless Connect, a community-wide, collaborative event, brings together a host of supportive programs, services and counseling all under one roof. The event takes place throughout the year in various segments of Palm Beach County to make it easy for people to overcome their current situations and move toward stability.
“Accessing resources is very difficult when you are faced with the challenges of homelessness; our responsibility as a community is to work together and offer help in any way possible,” said Pamela Payne, CEO of the Homeless Coalition.
Doors open at 10 a.m. with food served. Those who attend will have a chance to visit tables with resources and interactive displays; shop for clothes and toiletries; haircuts as well as medical screenings and HIV testing. Helpful professionals, from host provider agencies, will be on-site throughout the day to share news about programs and resources in place to help those affected by homelessness and support those at-risk.
