United Way and Latter-day Saints Team Up to Help Homeless

Hundreds of homeless in the East Valley converged on the The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Mesa Temple on Tuesday for “Project Connect” — a monthly event hosted by Valley of the Sun United Way. The event is hosted each time at a different Valley location to provide homeless people in the area with basic services.

Those services include everything from transportation to the Department of Economic Security, where residents can apply for aid programs, to a haircut. Medical attention, help with procuring legal documents and state-issued identification, as well as simply getting a bite to eat or looking for a job are all services provided by Project Connect
