Project Homeless Connect is a massive one-day event targeting unsheltered homeless people in Memphis and Shelby County at which all the resources and services needed to leave homelessness are provided under one roof, at one time. Community volunteers pair up one-on-one with homeless individuals beginning with street engagement and ending with accessing a wide array of resources at the Cook Convention Center. This project is coordinated by the Community Alliance for the Homeless.
