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

Rating: 5 stars  

My volunteer work at Homeless Connect on Wednesday, February 11, 2009, happened to be one of the most fulfilling assignments that I have participated in. It availed me the opportunity to serve and make a positive contribution to the society. I believe that offering free under- one –roof comprehensive service helps to relieve homelessness. The activity might not solve the entire homelessness problem but, the efforts and dedication of the organizers has an immense and immeasurable outcome. Along with working at a regular clinic, I would love to volunteer with Project Homeless Connect every other month. Also, I believe that if health care is available using this model for all individuals, most people would prefer to use a private health care services rather than the Homeless Connect model due to its insufficient availability of some vital services such as dental and vision. With the economic turmoil the United States is facing now, I do not support the idea of cutting down the services for the homeless population. Ignoring the destitute population in our society is not an option, because the adverse effects outweigh the benefit. However, numerous benefits are accrued from providing good and essential services to the homeless, such as shelter, dental, vision, drug counseling, food, and clothing services. Making such services available to the homeless will curb most problems including: domestic violence spread of diseases, littering, crime, sicknesses and death. Attending to the needs of the homeless will reinstate their sense of belonging, self- dignity and even inspire them to make a positive change for themselves. Knowing that someone care about them can be a powerful force to navigate them from homelessness to shelter and eventually to the workforce. Alias Ch A.
