Paint Tacoma-Pierce Beautiful

Project Homeless Connect

Welcome to Project Homeless Connect!

Project Homeless Connect is a series of local events which brings together our community in order to serve those experiencing homelessness in Pierce County.  This event brings together medical, dental, mental health services and more, as well as offering haircuts, lunch, and respect to people who have been living in their cars, on the street, and places not meant for human habitation.

The next Project Homeless Connect event will be held on Friday, October 11th, 2019.

We hope you will consider partnering with us in order to serve 800+ participants who are currently experiencing homelessness. We are seeking volunteers and vendors to serve in various capacities before, during and after the event. To learn more about volunteering please click on the Volunteer button below.

If you are interested in becoming a vendor, please read through the vendor guidelines below closely as some of the requirements have changed in order to ensure our vendors and participants enjoy this very important event.

Again, welcome and we look forward to seeing you on Friday, October 11th, 2019!
