Project Connect is a one-day, one-stop center that connects people experiencing, or at risk of homelessness with a broad range of short and long-term services. These include housing, employment, health and dental care, mental health care, veterans' and social service benefits, legal services, and more.

This year, over 50 social service agencies and 300 volunteers will serve an expected 300 guests. Since 2007, the event has served over 900 people in Orange County. The event is a key strategy of the Orange County Partnership to End Homelessness.

Through a unique community-wide partnership, Project Connect involves dozens of businesses, hundreds of volunteers, local governments, faith-based communities, and service providers all in an effort to end homelessness in Orange County. 
Volunteer positions are available to fit all schedules, abilities, and interests. You can volunteer on the day of the event or the evening before for set-up.  Spanish speakers are especially needed! Sign up online now to volunteer!
Project Connect is possible because of the generosity of the entire community. Monetary donations are graciously accepted and will go towards event costs such as equipment rentals, stipends to service providers, and supplies. 
Donations are tax-deductible.Make a donation online now!
