The mission to Project Homeless Connect (PHC) is to provide a single location where Health and Social Service Providers collaborate to serve individuals and families experiencing homelessness or that are at-risk of becoming homelessness with comprehensive, holistic, and immediate services. PHC is open to all families and individuals looking to overcome their barriers to stable housing. In past years popular services have included: haircuts, photo ID's, dental care, veterinary care, housing services, clothing, and wonderful lunch.
Skagit Project Homeless Connect would not be possible without the support of dedicated community volunteers that help plan and staff the event.
