Project Homeless Connect highlights successful year

January 24, 2019

NORFOLK - Over 350 people were served during last year’s Project Homeless Connect event in Norfolk.

Coordinator Lacy Kimes highlighted the success during a special luncheon Tuesday.

Kimes said Project Homeless Connect is a day of services for the homeless and near homeless to help move them forward.

She said one of their goals is for guests to leave the event with an action plan.

“That’s another thing that makes Project Homeless Connect unique. You don’t just leave with a bag full of pens, pads of paper, brochures, and information. You leave with an action plan. What are you going to do to continue on your road to success and coming out of poverty.”

Kimes said one of the new services they had was a mobile food pantry and gave away 22,000 pounds of food.

The 2019 Project Homeless Connect event is set for Friday June 28, and for more information go to the website ProjectHomelessConnectNorfolk.org.
