Review for Project Homeless Connect, San Francisco, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My first encounter at Project Homeless Connect was a mind-opening, incredibly satisfying experience. I was amazed at the high volume of PHC volunteers, over 1000. Expecting to see only homeless people there for services, I was astounded that not just homeless people, but people from all walks of life were there. Just one experience at Project Homeless Connect has brought a new sense of reality to me. Many people in San Francisco– the homeless and those who are in financial hardship utilize Project Homeless Connect. Project Homeless Connect offers numerous needed services, such as dental services, DMV identification, eyeglasses, family services, food, HIV testing, housing information, hygiene products, medical care, mental health services, needle exchange, acupuncture, massage, and even veterinary services for their pets. In my opinion, offering free under-one-roof comprehensive services is a step towards ameliorating homelessness. There are those that choose to stay homeless and those that truly want help. Project Homeless Connect provides services to help those that want to get off the streets. This program is a stepping-stone in helping individuals, who would not know where to begin in efforts to get back on their feet. For those that choose to live the life that they are currently living, Project Homeless Connect is providing them not only with essential health services, but also with the knowledge on where to get the help if ever they choose to turn around.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

incredible, everyone was so passionate in wanting to help.

Should this review be counted for a specific campaign?
