Project Homeless Connect—East County Gets Welcome Funding

Plus good news for San Diego police and shelter pets



A $6,500 grant to Crisis House will provide a welcome boost for Project Homeless Connect—East County

A $6,500 Grossmont Healthcare District grant to Crisis House will bolster Project Homeless Connect—East County, a one-day one-stop-shop that brings together homeless men, women, and children and a bevy of service providers. Since 2013, Project Homeless Connect—East County has been providing the transient population access to free haircuts, clothing, identification paperwork, legal help, medical checkups, pastoral counseling, addiction treatment, and housing and employment assistance. The last event, held in April, saw 192 adults and 21 children. 

“Our goal with PHC is to break the cycle of homelessness and poverty and make it easy for homeless individuals and families to access necessary services for rebuilding their lives and remaining safe, healthy and self-sufficient,” said Mary Case, Crisis House’s executive director.
