This June, over 30 agencies and businesses will be gathered at the Samaritan House Administration Building for the second annual Flathead Valley Project Homeless Connect (PHC). PHC is an international movement to end homelessness, which began in San Francisco in 2004. A PHC event typically gathers service providers that can assist the homeless or those at risk of homelessness in one location. However, PHC is not an information fair. We do our best to ensure that there will be immediate services at PHC, such as medical and dental services, haircuts, ID services, bicycle repair, pet services, employment assistance, housing counseling, and the opportunity to directly apply for public assistance.
Reaching out to the homeless population can be a challenge, which is why we would greatly appreciate it if you could spread the word. Anyone who is having trouble making ends meet, or are worried about losing their home would greatly benefit from this once a year opportunity. It is also a great chance for people who are new to poverty to learn about all the resources and services that are available to them.
Community Action Partnership is also accepting in-kind and monetary donations for PHC. We are looking for:
* Non-perishable food
* New socks and underwear
* Blankets and Sleeping Bags
In-kind donations can be dropped off at 214 Main Street, Monday through Friday from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm. Checks can be sent to and made payable to Community Action Partnership Attn Project Homeless Connect, PO Box 8300 Kalispell, MT 59904.
If you have any questions please call Sarah at 758-5445.
June 16, 11 am to 4 pm, and June 17, 9 am to 1 pm
