USA Volunteers Assist at Project Homeless Connect
Posted on January 30, 2015 by Joy Washington
The University of South Alabama and Housing First connected nearly 200 homeless individuals and families to much-needed services and resources all in one day and in one location. The event was held today, Friday, Jan. 30, at The Grounds.
“Project Homeless Connect linked hundreds of homeless clients to crucial services in our community,” said Dr. Margaret Moore-Nadler, assistant professor in the department of community and mental health in the USA College of Nursing and board member of the Continuum of Care Committee for Mobile and Baldwin counties with Housing First.
About 300 USA faculty, staff and students along with other community volunteers were paired with people in need to help them navigate a wide array of services including legal aid, medical, health exams, mental health services, dental, housing and numerous other services and resources.
“Our USA and community volunteers were incredible,” said Moore-Nadler. “It was a very rewarding experience.”
