Project Homeless Connect

By | Employment Opportunities, Giving Opportunities, Micah Day Center, Veterans, Volunteering

Project Homeless Connect is an annual event at the Donald Snyder Community Center in Biloxi MS where the homeless can come for a one free day “one stop” opportunity to receive services, and personal assistance. Some of the things included by service providers were: breakfast and lunch, financial services, haircuts, health screenings, housing information, flu shots, hygiene kits, resources, VA assistance, and vaccinations for pets. Back Bay Mission attends yearly, and this year we passed out 150 pairs of BOMBAS socks, 110 flyers for the Hunger Homeless meal, and 150 quick resource guides for homeless that Back Bay Mission made, but perhaps the most important thing we did was interact with people that were eager for change and full of hope!
