2018 Loveland Connect
The seventh annual Loveland Connect will take place on Friday, October 12, 2018 from 8:00am to 1:00pm at Truscott Elementary, located at 211 West 6th Street. The event will last an hour longer in 2018. Loveland Connect is based on the national best practice model called Project Homeless Connect that has been replicated in over 260 communities across the country.
More than forty services in one location will be offered for the homeless or near homeless at the Loveland Connect event. The services provided are a symbol of the community coming together to send a message about assisting those who are most vulnerable.
This event also provides a rare and important opportunity for volunteers to interact with Loveland citizens who are facing homelessness or may be close to becoming homeless. Event guests are paired with a volunteer. The goal of the pairing is to have the volunteer guide the guest through the event, starting with a shared meal, and accessing services that could make a difference for the guest, such as gathering information about housing, accessing dental care or medical health screenings, bike repair, or a haircut. The support of the volunteer creates a powerful connection and gives a personal story to those who are facing homelessness.
We hope that you will join us as a volunteer and assist those who need it most. To register, please complete the information below or contact the Community Partnership Office for more information at (970) 962-2517.
THANK YOU FOR VOLUNTEERING!
