Event connects public with health and human service agencies

Project Community Connect will host its second annual event on August 27 to connect the public with health and human service agencies and distribute backpacks to school age children.

The goal of this event is to improve community members' access to vital services and housing information.

Project Community Connect is a collaborative effort to engage consumers, businesses, non-profits and volunteers to work together to create solutions to help better serve local community members in need.

This one-stop shop model connects individuals and families with multiple resources and services they need.

Each guest will receive help in identifying what specific services they need and will explore options they otherwise may not have been aware of.

Project Community Connect will offer the following services: housing, employment, medical care, mental health care, transportation, legal assistance, daycare information, benefit information, school supplies, food and more.

This event will be held at the United Methodist Church, 2210 6th Avenue East, Alexandria. Hours will run from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on August 27.
