2018 Learning Opportunities: Skagit Project Homeless Connect
Project Homeless Connect is a one-day service fair organized by the Skagit Coalition to End Homelessness, and each year we serve 350+ households of 800+ individuals. This year’s event is open to guests 9 a.m.-2 p.m. on Friday, August 24, on the Skagit Valley College campus. It is also a Free Community Ride Day on Skagit Transit for all community members. Over 50 service providers, including dentists (two days!), housing services, pet care and more will be available, and 300 volunteers and sponsors make it possible. Our primary goal is hospitality, welcome and immediacy of services for guests. Our second and equally important goal is raising community awareness and empathy for people experiencing poverty in Skagit County.

Please spread the word:

Community education opportunities: This year we have two community education opportunities, both starting at SVC Ford Hall Room 102, map link here:

1) PHC tour, noon-1 p.m.: We will provide one tour of PHC (while maintaining respect and confidentiality for guests) for elected officials, jurisdictions’ staff, and event sponsors beginning noon. During the tours, participants learn about local services, the surprising diversity of people experiencing homelessness, and community collaborations to end homelessness.

2) Finding Solutions to the Housing Shortage, 1 p.m.-2 p.m.: Join us for a special presentation on Housing Hope’s Twin Lakes Landing Project which opened December of 2017. Come learn about how this pre-fabricated container housing project, built in Idaho, was able to be placed in Marysville. Julie Blazek, Partner with HKP Architecture will be speaking about how the project came to be. Housing Hope will also be on hand to talk about their vision and what other housing projects they have in store. FMI: Joan Penney, Community Action Development, at 360-588-5720
