The City of Hinesville’s Homeless Prevention Program within the Community Development Department will host Project Homeless Connect as a part of Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Month, celebrated nationally in November.
Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Month is an annual program where people come together across the country to draw attention to the problems of hunger and homelessness. Participating groups spend the week holding a series of educational, service, fundraising and advocacy events.
This year’s Project Homeless Connect will offer a variety of services, including free dental work to those who obtain a voucher from the city’s Community Development Department. The Department’s Director, Donita Gaulden, said, “The event exemplifies the community’s compassion and commitment to helping those in need as numerous agencies volunteer their time to offer much needed services which greatly impact the lives of our most vulnerable citizens.”
“The City of Hinesville’s Homeless Prevention Program is excited to share in this national focus,” said Program Coordinator of the Homeless Prevention Program Kristin Bryant. “Hunger and homelessness is a national and local epidemic that impacts people every day and this event will work to shed light on this problem and the work we do every day to contribute to the solution.”
