Project Homeless Connect Rochester
A Day of Services at
Blue Cross Arena at The War Memorial
Exchange and Broad Streets
Our next event will be Oct 21, 2014, 8:30am-3pm.
Event Partners: County Executive Maggie Brooks and Monroe County, the City of Rochester, the US Interagency Council on Homelessness, plus a coalition of homeless service providers, soup kitchens, emergency shelters and other key community organizations
The homeless struggle daily with the repercussions of unmet basic human needs for safety, food, stability and shelter.
On any given night in Rochester and Monroe Country, hundreds of people are living either on the streets or in temporary shelter.
Connect homeless people with critical services in a “one-stop” venue. We are bringing together a wide range of community agencies and professionals to provide the homeless with access to health care, social services, legal advice, food, medical care and much more—all within a caring and safe environment.
