Can we make a difference in someone's life in just one day? Yes, we can! Join ACC's ViTaL Team for our fall semester volunteering event: Project Homeless Connect 2017. The event will take place on Tuesday, September 19 at the Colorado Convention Center, 700 14th St, Denver, CO 80202.

Become a leader in your community and get service learning project credit for your time. This is a great chance to get out and help others while learning valuable skills and make connections throughout the community.

Project Homeless Connect is a free resource fair for homeless and at-risk individuals and families. During this one-day event, clients are able to access an array of services ranging from ID services, housing services, resume workshops, clothing banks, vision check and healthcare to veterans services, childcare, petcare and much more. We expect to see 1,000 clients at this year's event and need nearly as many volunteers to make the day a success. Please join us on September 19 as we help our most vulnerable population access the resources they need to become self-sufficient for themselves and their families.

Lunch will be provided and all volunteers will receive a t-shirt. Wear comfortable shoes. Must be 16 or older to volunteer.

Sign up for a volunteer shift! Available shifts include Guest Services (from 3-6 hours) and tear-down shift (3 hours).

It's amazing to see the change in people from the time they walk in the door to this event to the time they leave. They look different, feel different, have new information and friends at hand, and possibly even a new job and a place to stay! Come help make a difference in the life of someone who needs a hand.
