Friends,

Thanks for your interest in Project Homeless Connect. As many of you know, PHC has been undergoing a lot of changes in the past year, and has emerged from that process a very different event than many of you are familiar with. The event moving forward will be a much smaller, leaner, and more frequent event with a laser focus on serving those who need services the most. Future events will not be coordinated by the Office to End Homelessness or the PHC steering committee, but rather will be based in the community and organized by the community.

The first great examples of this new focus happened this spring, with a one day women’s health fair in February, and then with a five day service fair at the Opportunity center in downtown Minneapolis in early May.  These events will serve as a template for future events, and we will continue to need committed and engaged volunteers to make these events possible.

Future event notifications will not be posted on this website, nor will they be sent to the large Project Homeless Connect email list of alumni volunteers. We will be collecting email addresses from those who are interested, and will email periodically when opportunities arise. Please visit https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/2QBMBLG to add your information to that list.

If you are interested in volunteering on a more regular basis, we encourage you to visit www.handsontwincities.org and search for housing in the search bar. There are hundreds of one time and ongoing volunteer opportunities available, and I am sure you will find something that matches your skills and ambition.

Thanks to each of you for your commitment to this work, and your gift of time and treasure.

Together, we are ending homelessness,

Matthew Ayres
