Project Connect Niagara, an event designed to connect those in need with critical services in a "one-stop" venue, will take place from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, July 25, at Heart, Love & Soul Food Pantry and Dining Room in Niagara Falls.
Last year's event saw approximately 315 attendees, each of which whom able to connect with more than 40 organizations that were represented. Those attending were able to access free services and resources, including housing, employment, government benefits, veterans benefits and legal services. Also on hand was Mount St. Mary's Hospital, offering several free medical services. Transportation was provided from local communities to the event.
"We believe that Project Connect Niagara has become an important event to the residents of the city, that they look forward to each year," said Adam Bartoszek, committee chairperson. "We are excited that the number of participants each year continues to increase, as do the number of services that we are able to provide. The community buy-in has been exciting to watch develop, and we look forward to seeing what this year holds!"
The event is presented by the Niagara County Coalition of Services to the Homeless, in conjunction with the annual Niagara County Poverty Conference. With a goal of making a positive impact on the community, the project aims to form a partnership between community volunteers, city government, nonprofits and the private sector to provide this "one-stop shop" of health and human services for those in need throughout Niagara County.
