Project Connect 2014 was a huge success! Hundreds of people experiencing homelessness and extreme poverty from across the region came to the annual event. We wanted to take a moment to recognize the amazing volunteers, donors and service providers (in no particular order) for everything they’ve done to make Project Connect possible.
