Project Homeless Connect just doesn't describe the attendees any more.

Joel Kilgour of the Loaves and Fishes Community says it's not just homeless folks that need help navigating the alphabet soup and red tape of local services and agencies; more and more people in poverty are in need of connection, too.

So the event returns this year with a new name and 34 agencies in one place, ready to give people a hand with everything from hair cuts to health care.
