Project Connect to provide housing referrals

Project Connect 2014On Thursday, July 30, 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.

During the overnight hours on July 29-30, 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.

Volunteers are needed to help with the Point in Time Count. If you would like to volunteer, please contact MaiGer Moua at United Way, 715-298-5726.

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.

Locally, 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

For more information, contact United Way of Marathon County at 715 -298-5726.
