Annual Homeless Connect Coming Up Soon!

The Merced County Rescue Mission will once again join the Coc (Continuum of Care), in sponsoring the Annual Homeless Connect. This event will be held on Friday, Sept. 28th, 2018, at the Central Presbyterian's Hoffmeister Center from 9:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Organizations from Merced County and City and many private organizations will come together to provide services to people who are homeless. These services help people address health concerns, housing, obtaining identification (essential for any type of application) and there will be assistance for veterans. Lunch will also be provided. One of the highlights of this event will be that each homeless person will receive a new backpack provided by Hope Mills, filled with hygiene items, clothing, and food. The County Human Services Agency will be there along with Sierra Saving Grace to assist with housing concerns. We anticipate approximately 300 homeless individuals to come to receive services. Once again we are grateful to Phil Schmauss for heading up this tremendous event.

If you or your organization want to be a part of this incredible day, please contact Tim Adam, 209-947-1394.
