DENVER (CBS4) – Health, legal and employment resources are all things the homeless community cannot often access.
This week an event that was held at the Colorado Convention Center called Project Homeless Connect 15 helped tackle that problem.
Event organizers teamed up with the Mile High United Way on Thursday to bring more than 100 services under one roof free of charge for the homeless.
“It’s difficult sometimes navigating the systems that provide services to our vulnerable residents. We see that as an opportunity to provide those services,” said Bennie Milliner, executive director of Denver’s Road Home.
The event happens every year. Organizers have helped more than 13,000 people since 2006.
