Walsh Catering To Provide Hot Meals at Project Homeless Connect
Incorporated will provide hot meals throughout the day at Danbury Project Homeless Connect 2010 to
be conducted from 9:00 am to 3 pm on December 10, 2010 at Bill Williams Gymnasium
on the downtown campus of Western Connecticut State University. For the third consecutive year, Chef Patrick Walsh has committed to
donate the services of his company to provide full food service at the event
that is designed to provide help to persons who are homeless or in need of
housing and supportive services.
Chef Walsh will facilitate the provision of all food items needed in
cooperation with US Food.
Homeless Connect is organized by the Greater
Danbury Continuum of Care in collaboration with WestConn and the Danbury
Housing Partnership. A key
strategic element of the regional Ten-Year Plan To End Homelessness, the
event brings together more than forty area housing agencies and service
providers along with community volunteers to provide one-stop delivery of an
array of assistance to persons who are homeless or in danger of becoming
homeless. Danbury is one of many
communities throughout the country conducting Project Homeless Connect events
as part of a coordinated effort to address homelessness organized by the United
States Interagency Council on Homelessness.
In addition to a hot and healthy meal, services available
will include medical screenings, vision checks, haircuts, clothing/personal
items, assistance with housing, legal assistance, credit counseling, veterans
benefits, drivers licenses, substance abuse help, mental health assistance and
a variety of other services.
Community volunteers will be present to provide translation services and
assist people to connect with the services they require.
