More than 400 participants attended Milwaukee’s 6th annual Project Homeless Connect event at Marquette University Alumni Memorial Student Union, 1442 W. Wisconsin Ave. The one-day, one-stop event, held Thursday, offered multiple free services to homeless individuals. Participants were able to receive clothing, hygiene kits, haircuts, and health and dental screenings, as well as gather information on Social Security, legal matters and mental health.
Volunteers led individuals through three floors of services, and gave them a lunch and light snack as they left. The event was co-sponsored by United Way of Greater Milwaukee and Waukesha County, the city of Milwaukee and Milwaukee County.
