Students and faculty served the community through Project Homeless Connect on Nov. 4. This one-stop event at the Hargraves Community Center in Chapel Hill provided services such as job-readiness resources, health and dental care, mental health assistance, social services, legal services and  housing to people experiencing or at risk of experiencing homelessness.

Ten faculty and 27 students participated the day of the event, and students also assisted with outreach efforts before the event. During the event they helped with intake forms, provided health information, helped with eye exams, gave manicures, and assisted in escorting guests to various stations. Read the full story here.
