Continuum of Care

Project Homeless Connect

In Contra Costa, Project Homeless Connect is held annually and moves around to each of the three major regions of the county - Central County, East County and West County with the goals to 1) improve access to services and housing for homeless adults, youth and families, 2) improve the homeless system of care through collaboration and the sharing of best practices, and 3) partner with volunteers, services providers, faith-based organizations, the business community, and corporations to increase awareness and secure community involvement, commitment, and investment in ending homelessness.

To meet these goals, the County Homeless Program partners with over 250 services providers, businesses and community volunteers to provide 1000 participants with free services that include medical care, substance abuse and mental health counseling, family services, shelter, legal assistance, state-issued identification cards, and haircuts.
