POINT IN TIME
PROJECT HOMELESS CONNECT
Point in Time/Project Homeless Connect is scheduled for January 30, 2014. The Homeless Network of Yakima County holds this event to determine the number of people who are homeless in Yakima County. There are actually four event sites that have services and resources available to people in need. This year, we are training people to assist in identifying people out in the field who might not make it to a site.
  
Donations of clothing, survival gear, and other essentials are greatly needed.
  
Volunteers for preparation and working at the event sites are also needed.
  
There is a lot do do to get ready for this important event. Please contact Ellie for more details.
