Next Project Homeless Connect at Golden Gate Park

Mayor Gavin Newsom insists that the homeless population has been on the decline on his watch. He attributes much of that to his pet project, Homeless Connect, a one-stop shop where thousands of homeless residents can access a variety of services at one location.

This week, the mayor is hosting the latest Project Homeless Connect day at a homeless hot-spot: Golden Gate Park. On Wednesday, volunteers will outreach specifically to the homeless population living in Golden Gate Park and the surrounding neighborhoods.

The Golden Gate Park event is a collaboration of several youth organizations including Homeless Youth Alliance, Larkin Street Youth Services and Huckleberry House. The project is also collaborating with Haight Ashbury Free Clinics, Rock Medicine and the Department of Public Health’s Cole Street Youth Clinic to provide all the medical needs.

People can start accessing services at 10 a.m.
