Project Homeless Connect 2019
NEWPORT, Ore. – Project Homeless Connect has grown! This year, Lincoln County can expect two Project Homeless Connect events in two separate locations – Lincoln City and Newport.
The 12th annual Lincoln County Project Homeless Connect will continue its mission to provide all sheltered and unsheltered people with immediate goods and services. Lincoln County Public Health is proud to participate alongside other community agencies in this community event.
Lincoln City will have it’s event on Thursday, January 24th, 2019 from 10 AM – 4 PM at Lincoln City Resource Center & Warming Shelter at 1206 SE 48th Place, Lincoln City. Newport will have it’s event on Friday, January 25th, 2019 from 10 AM – 3 PM at the Church of the Nazarene at 227 NW 12th, Newport.
Both sites offer a free meal, donated clothing items, dental care, HIV testing, and Oregon Health Plan (OHP) Enrollment. Newport will continue to provide haircuts, pet care, immunizations, and various legal & housing assistance programs from the community. Lincoln City will start off it’s first year with showers, laundry, mental health services, and medical bus tickets.
Project Homeless Connect is a fine example of how our community can come together and volunteer our time toward improving the lives of those in need. Individuals interested in volunteering at the event can help with taking down items and should arrive to Naz church at 3PM on Friday the 25th. All other volunteer roles are filled!
Those interested in contributing can donate items to Dignity Drive collection bins at Newport Public Library, Carl’s Coffee in Nye Beach, and Atonement Lutheran Church in Newport. Recommended items include men’s socks, long underwear, warm layer clothing, hygiene products, and tarps.
We are looking forward to another year of this great event!
