Description

It was purposeful chaos day inside the Juneau Arts & Humanities Culture Center, where more than 40 organizations were providing everything from haircuts and blood pressure checks to housing applications, food and some very popular sleeping bags.

It’s the sixth time the Juneau Coalition on Housing & Homelessness has hosted Project Homeless Connect, a free event for Juneau’s homeless to get access to a variety of services and resources in one day and in one place.
