On any given night in the Omaha/Council Bluffs area, it is estimated there are approximately 1500 homeless in shelters and on the streets.

Project Homeless Connect Omaha 2015 will be on Friday, March 27, 2015 at the Creighton University Kiewit Fitness Center.
Project Homeless Connect is a one-day event that serves as a “one-stop shop,” connecting homeless individuals to needed services, including: housing, healthcare, legal resources, Social Security, food-stamp benefits, and additional services.  Government agencies, non-profit agencies, local businesses, volunteer groups, medical providers, legal experts and many other service providers come together in Creighton University’s Kiewit Fitness Center to offer on-site immediate assistance to individuals, families, seniors, veterans and youth who find themselves homeless. Project Homeless Connect Omaha has assisted homeless individuals improve their lives and exit life on the streets.
Project Homeless Connect Omaha is also about engaging Omaha residents who volunteer their time and talent for the area’s homeless by training them to act as Navigators for the homeless individuals they are paired with at the event.
