More than 300 homeless men and women from Milwaukee on Thursday, Oct. 18, will receive medical screenings, dental and Social Security appointments, mental health assistance, haircuts, legal consultations, and other health and social services during Project Homeless Connect: Milwaukee, a one-stop shop of comprehensive support services for people experiencing homelessness.
The services will be offered from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Marquette University’s Alumni Memorial Union, 1442 W. Wisconsin Ave.
During the event, more than 200 local advocates will administer services to attendees, accomplishing in one day what might normally take several months. Guests will also partner with volunteers to identify and access necessary resources, explore previously unused benefits, and to eat lunch together.
Project Homeless Connect is a nationally recognized model of providing services to men and women experiencing homelessness, and this is the third annual event for Milwaukee . Project Homeless Connect: Milwaukee is a Milwaukee Continuum of Care event.
