On Friday, October 15th, HSC relaunched Project Connect with our first event in the Sunnyslope area. Thanks to Sunnyslope Mennonite Church for hosting and partnering on this successful outreach opportunity.
Dozens of partners served 109 individuals experiencing homelessness in this one-day effort. A few highlights: 50 people received their AZ state identification, 11 people processed applications for copies of their birth certificate, a dozen bicycles were repaired. With a virtual connection to the Social Security Administration, HSC staff worked with 19 individuals to process their benefits applications; one person now receives an additional $400 of income per month.
Many thanks to volunteers who helped to serve, including NextGen ASU Students.
HSC is committed to holding these events across Maricopa County. Stay tuned for details on the next Project Connect and ways to get involved.
