Project Everyday Connect is an outgrowth of Project HomelessConnect. Project Homeless Connect provides a periodic venue where folks can access a wide variety of services, including podiatry, optometry, medical, social services, legal, all in one place at one time. SF CARES has provided foot washers and pastoral care there in the past. These events are great on the days they operate, but of course people have needs 365 days a year, so Project Everyday Connect was born. They are available by phone and email every day of the year and have appointments available Monday through Friday. The PEC folks work “directly with those seeking services, as well as with case managers & staff from other agencies, to make connections to those often hard-to-access resources, services & goods that can provide additional or necessary ingredients for a successful move out of homelessness, transition into housing, or avoidance of housing loss.”
All of SF CARES’ collaborators are able to refer folks for this event and the PEC folks will serve as many as ten to twenty people today. This is only our second time hosting the Vision Van, but we are looking forward to another event until the needs of all of our folks are met. Project Everyday Connect can connect people with vision care and other services year round. They can be reached at 1-855-588-7968. We're so glad to be partnering with Project Everyday Connect to provide this vital service for our folks.
