2014 Watsonville PHC Event: Wednesday November 5th. 10am – 4pm

Project Homeless Connect is a one-day, one-stop event to provide housing, services, and hospitality in a convenient one-stop model directly to people experiencing homelessness in Santa Cruz County. It is a way to bring service providers, government agencies, and the general community together to address a problem that affects everyone. The goal is to move from simply managing homelessness towards really ending it.

The Watsonville event will happen on Wednesday, November 5th, 2014 at the Veterans Memorial Building located at 215 East Beach Street in Watsonville.
