The Pierce County Project Homeless Connect needs your help! This year, the event will be Wednesday, October 23rd at the Tacoma Dome from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Project Homeless Connect provides a starting place on the journey back to safety, stability, health, and hope. Project Homeless Connect reduces the duration of homelessness by providing services that address the basic needs; basic medical and dental care, access to education, employment and benefits systems, chemical dependency assessments, flu shots, haircuts, and much more – all under one roof!
Promoters expect 1,500 attendees and dental services are among the most-utilized services at the event. Cheryl Jenkins, Executive Director of the Pierce County Dental Society is the dental lead for the event, and is looking for volunteers to fulfill morning and afternoon half-day shifts. Interested volunteeers should contact Ms. Jenkins directly at (253) 272-9960 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
