At South Mountain Community College on November 2, with over 180 volunteers and 40 providers, our community came together to break the cycle of poverty for every child, individual, and family in Maricopa County through Project Connect.
With their help, as well as Maricopa Community Colleges District and Basic Mission, we were able to connect more than 200 people to more than 1100 needed services. Half of our guests attended for the first time.
“This was a successful accomplishment – I’ve gotten everything taken care of.”
– T. Thompson
These services allow people to find resources for housing, job assistance, clothing, showers, haircuts, and other needs all in one location, in one day.
“I’m a procrastinator, so getting everything done in a single day is a blessing!”
– Jeannie J.
