10th Annual Project Community Connect (PCC) Table Reservation 2018

We are now accepting registrations for the 2018 Project Community Connect. The 10th annual event will be held Friday, January 26th 2018 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Mayo High School. We ask that everyone is set up by 9:30 am Friday January 26th.

PCC is a “one-stop shop” model of delivering services. Attendees will have access to a wide variety of community resources including housing, financial, employment, education, legal and veteran programs. The event includes a free meal, free Minnesota ID cards, free HIV testing, medical services and much more. PCC is a great opportunity to engage the community in a meaningful way by volunteering, creating new partnerships and dispelling myths about low-income and homeless people. This is not a “charity” event. This event makes systems more efficient by developing a better way of providing services, working together and ending homelessness.

In 2017 PCC brought together over ? service providers and more than ? volunteers, reducing the time it takes to develop community connections from several months to just a few minutes. The event served approximately 360 individuals from the community.
