Once a year in Everett, people in need of human services such as help with housing, medical assistance, drug and alcohol treatment or other mental health assessment can go to one site to find resources.
It’s called Project Homeless Connect, but it’s not just for the homeless. Anyone who needs assistance can go, and Thursday, a bus will ferry people back and forth between Monroe and Everett, free of charge.
“Project Homeless Connect is a one-day, one stop shop event designed to provide immediate services to the homeless in our community,” explained a brochure from United Way of Snohomish County.
Services listed include information on housing support, DSHS benefits, mental health support, drug and alcohol assessment, medical and dental care onsite, haircuts, pet and veterinary care, information on veteran’s benefits, a meal and more.
A van will begin offering rides at 10 a.m. from WorkSource Monroe, which is located in the old Coast to Coast Hardware building on West Main, next to St. Vincent De Paul.
