For one day, Project Homeless Connect (PHC) gives people experiencing homelessness the opportunity to access an array of services (housing, medical services, ID services, employment services, haircuts, etc.) in a system which is often difficult to understand and navigate.
This year, PHC will have a part II taking place on Saturday, July 23rd. PHC part II will allow homeless clients who were unable to attend February’s event the opportunity to receive services. PHC part II will also ensure that clients already served are able to continue their journey to bettering their circumstances by receiving additional or follow-up services.
With the partnership of Faith Chapel Christian Center, Hands On Birmingham will continue to provide “Smiling Face Client Guides” to host homeless clients. We are excited to continue engaging our volunteers in social change.
For more opportunities later in the year, please visit our Community Events page. Here are upcoming events:
