Whatever you can give, Interfaith Hospitality needs you!
The Interfaith Homeless Network will be participating in Project Homeless Connect on May 14th at the First Tennessee Pavilion from 9 - 3 PM.
The goal of Project Homeless Connect (PHC) is to offer a "one stop shop" for individuals and families experiencing homelessness or in imminent risk of becoming homeless. PHC combines the efforts of social services, government, volunteers and businesses to bring our community together to create and promote tangible solutions to remedy the homelessness of our neighbors. PHC is a national best practice model that originated in San Francisco and has spread across the United States and abroad.
At least 25 IHN volunteers need to volunteer any amount of time to do intakes with homeless individuals and families. This requires that you meet with homeless individuals and families at the First TN Pavilion and complete a form to assess their needs. It takes about 5 - 10 minutes per individual and family.
There will be a brief orientation to familiarize you with the form. After you complete the form with the families they will be guided to the appropriate service providers on site to receive assistance. We expect over 350 homeless individuals and families.
