Project Homeless Connect is an annual event organized by United Way that brings resources and services together under one roof to best serve those experiencing homelessness. Over 700 guests will attend the one-day event at Marquette University on Thursday, Oct. 19.
Volunteers are critical to creating a positive experience and connecting the guests with resources and services provided throughout the AMU. Volunteers are required to register here in advance for a shift.
Possible volunteer engagement will include:
- Interacting one-on-one with guests throughout the day
- Guiding guests to needed services and resources
- Helping with operations such as check-in, lunch distribution and resource stations.
Lunch will be provided for volunteers.
Any questions about the volunteer experience can be directed to Mary Sue Callan-Farley, director of campus ministry, or Kelsey Otero, senior director of community engagement in the Office of University Relations.
