Project Homeless Connect

Dental hygienist Laurel Berard works on a patient during the Skagit Project Homeless Connect event in August 2017 at Skagit Valley College.

Skagit Project Homeless Connect returns to Skagit Valley College from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Friday.

Now in its ninth year, Skagit Project Homeless Connect offers free services for both the homeless and at-risk members of the community.

Among the free offerings will be health screenings, dental cleanings and referrals, reading glasses, veterans services, pet care, housing assistance, legal aid, clothing, toiletries, haircuts and help getting identification, according to a news release from Community Action of Skagit County.

Based on feedback from last year, the event will enhance its veterinary offerings as well as offer a free shuttle to the Department of Licensing to help those in attendance get IDs.

In conjunction with the event, Skagit Transit is offering free bus service Friday.
