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!
Every day in Washington State people live with dental pain because they lack the resources to see a dentist. Although adult dental Medicaid will be restored in the coming months, it won't cover all the need throughout Washington — we need your help to increase the dental safety net. While nearly all dentists give back to their communities, the need is still great, and many organizations have clinics or hold events where volunteers are needed. We've gathered up information about some of the events and organizations across the state where you (and often, your staff) can volunteer to help those without dental health care resources.
