Project Homeless Connect

Project Homeless Connect (PHC) and Simply the Basics (SB) are working together to improve the physical health of people experiencing homelessness, reduce infection rates, reduce emergency room visits due to poor health. With your support, we can improve overall wellness and dignity!

Tooth decay and gum disease can significantly alter multiple aspects of people’s life, including nutritional health and self-esteem. Daily activities such as chewing, speaking, and smiling become difficult. These issues can discourage a person from taking proactive steps in their life, from employment opportunities to withdrawing from their community. That's why we are focusing on expanding our Dental Program!

When individuals begin the process of obtaining dentures, they often tell us that one of the main goals they have is to smile again. Along with that smile comes renewed self-esteem and confidence. Once an individual gets their confidence back and they feel better about themselves, they’re more likely to start tackling other goals. Nothing beats seeing an individual’s face light up after they receive dentures and saying joyfully: “I look amazing and feel amazing!”

Help us make a difference by supporting and sharing our campaign - the first $15,000 will be matched by Google.org!

For many San Franciscans, PHC events have become a regular part of volunteering and community service experiences. If you have never been to a Community Day of Service but are interested in learning more about future volunteer opportunities and better understand how PHC provides care with dignity, we have a wonderful opportunity to get to know us better!

Our Acting CEO, Meghan Freebeck, would love to show you the impact of the event and tell you more about ways to get involved in the future.

Email Meghan.Freebeck@sfdph.org by Friday, October 6th (space is limited), to set up a scheduled time to meet Meghan and see why Project Homeless Connect's "one-stop-shop" model was named a Best Practice by HUD and has since been replicated in over 200 communities world wide!

Dear PHC Family,

On behalf of Project Homeless Connect, I am excited to celebrate with you the successes and accomplishments from 2016: www.projecthomelessconnect.org.... I trust that you will agree, PHC's achievements in service are unparalleled due to the tireless dedication of staff, volunteers, donors, and supporters. Together, we exemplify what it means to be a community, connected.

What makes PHC so special is the quality of care we offer to people in need. Thank you for helping make immediate change around homelessness in San Francisco. With your support in 2016:

7,428 basic care supplies, including clean socks and hygiene care were distributed.
4,836 vision correction services were provided, including screenings, readers, and prescription glasses.
4,596 people enjoyed a healthy meal at a Project Homeless Connect event.

These numbers only show a brief snapshot of our services. In total, 6,679 San Franciscans in need received life-changing services through PHC last year. All of those results were only possible because of supporters like you.

Through ongoing evaluation of our programs, we make sure that our services reach the people who need them most. The report includes testimonies, graphics, and pictures that show the success of a collaborative effort of a dedicated PHC community.
This report is also a chance for us to express our gratitude. We couldn't accomplish our work without you - thank you again.

It takes us all,

Kara Zordel
Executive Director

"If your wings are broken, Borrow mine so yours can open too, Cause I'm gonna stand by you." (Rachel Platten, "Stand By You")

Those words rang out at the PHC 67 volunteer rally, during a performance by Singers of the Street. In the current political climate, where people have been arrested after seeking refuge in a church shelter and the President is rolling back the rights of transgender individuals, many in our community are feeling worried and alone. Luckily, the volunteers at Project Homeless Connect did more than provide services - they dispensed love.

Ann volunteered as a Participant Escort at PHC 67 for the first time and helped Richard* find the services he needed: an eye exam, a hearing test, and a massage. Together, they picked up free books and walked to the Food Bank, where Richard found groceries for the week ahead. They stood by each other from Check-In to Check-Out, and had the chance to create a human connection that might not have been possible otherwise.

Thank you to the hundreds of volunteers who opened their wings in service at PHC 67. We couldn't be more proud to stand by you.

Volunteer for the 2017 Point-in-Time Count!
Thursday, January 26, 2017, 7:00pm - 12am

On January 26, hundreds of volunteers will come together to count the number of people experiencing homelessness in San Francisco. Data collected from the count will shape the city's homelessness policies and resources over the next two years.

It takes over 300 volunteers to cover every area of the city. Your participation is essential. Will you join us?

Sign up to volunteer here: www.surveymonkey.com/r/SF2017p...

Many of the people most in need of PHC's services cannot easily travel to find help. For someone sleeping outside in San Francisco - cold, lonely, and wondering where their next meal will be - just getting to our office is its own challenge

In 2016 we found a solution: the PHC CareVan, a mobile homeless services unit. You, our PHC community, helped kickstart the campaign and spread the word across the city. This month, thanks to a generous gift from Google.org and support from the Hotel Council of San Francisco, we purchased a Ford Cargo Van (see pictures above!).

We're almost ready to hit the road next year, but our job is just beginning...

The CareVan can't run without your help. Will you stand with us, and donate to bring dental care, new glasses, and food to hundreds of neighbors in need? Every gift - whether $50 or $500 - will help individuals experiencing homelessness find work, medical care, and the resources they need to move forward.

Thank you!

Dear PHC Family,

With half an inch of rainfall and a low of 47 degrees, December 7 was a cold and rainy day for PHC 66. Thanks to donations from our incredible PHC community, each event participant left the Bill Graham with a coat, a crocheted blanket, or a rain poncho to stay warm.

Goodwill Industries brought another key service to PHC 66: employment! Nine people filled out job applications at the event, and interviewed with the store manager on-site at Bill Graham. Two more participants also spoke to career advisors about e-commerce positions through Goodwill.

We're grateful to the Hotel Council of San Francisco, our event sponsor for PHC 66 and a key partner in both the Hoodies for the Homeless and CareVan campaigns. None of the event outcomes (listed below) would be possible without you, the PHC community. With your generosity, you spread warmth and love throughout San Francisco.

It takes us all,

Kara Zordel
Executive Director
