Project Homeless Connect took place Tuesday at the Waco Convention Center.
This is an annual event organized by the Heart of Texas Homeless Coalition.
Around 40 agencies, non-profits, and groups provided a vast array of services including; dental, medical screenings, rapid HIV testing, employment assistance, social services, housing options, pet care, veteran’s benefits, access to healthcare and mental health care and substance abuse treatment, lunch, hygiene items, coats and more.
“Miracle Messages” was added to this year’s event. It’s a group in town that helps those homeless on the streets reconnect with estranged family members through digital media.
Project Homeless Connect expected to serve around 150 people.
