Project Connect can help with housing problems

Do you need help finding a place to live? Do you know someone who is homeless? Are you worried about paying the rent?

If so, Project Connect can help. On Thursday, January 29 from 7:00 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. United Way's Housing and Homelessness Coalition will host Project Connect, a community breakfast and resource fair. Ten agencies will be on-site to provide housing, financial, and community resources and referrals. Project Connect will be held at First United Methodist Church on 3rd and Fulton Streets. The event is free and open to the public.

The Housing and Homelessness Coalition’s goals are to:

  • collaboratively raise awareness, find solutions and eradicate homelessness in Marathon County
  • gather information and data related to housing challenges
  • connect people to housing and financial resources
  • address and alleviate gaps in basic needs like housing and food

During the overnight hours on January 28-29, teams of volunteers will be doing the biannual Point-In-Time Count. This "street count" of the homeless population occurs twice a year (the last Wednesday of January and the last Wednesday in July) and provides valuable information regarding homelessness in our community.

The Point in Time Count is recommended by the federal Housing and Urban Development Agency and is being done in communities across the country. Results are used to inform legislators and other policy makers as they make decisions about this important issue.
