The sixth annual Loveland Connect will take place on Friday, October 13, 2017 from 8:00am to 12:00pm at Truscott Elementary, located at 211 West 6th Street. This event is based on the national best practice model called Project Homeless Connect that has been replicated in over 260 communities across the country.

More than forty services in one location will be offered for the homeless or near homeless at the Loveland Connect event. The services provided are a symbol of the community coming together to send a message about assisting those who are most vulnerable.

This event also provides a rare and important opportunity for volunteers to interact with Loveland citizens who are facing homelessness or may be close to becoming homeless. Event guests are paired with a volunteer. The goal of the pairing is to have the volunteer guide the guest through the event, starting with a shared meal, and accessing services that could make a difference for the guest, such as gathering information about housing, accessing dental care or medical health screenings, bike repair, or a haircut. The support of the volunteer creates a powerful connection and gives a personal story to those who are facing homelessness.

We hope that you will join us as a volunteer and assist those who need it most. To register, please fill out the attached volunteer form and return it to the Community Partnership Office at 500 E. Third Street, Suite 210 or register online at

We have opportunities to sort donations, deep clean the cafe/storage warehouse/grounds, doing administrative work like filing, thank you letter writing, organizing our event and program materials and working with our volunteer database. We also always need work with the general shifts in the cafe- filling these shifts for the week of Make a Difference Day would be a huge help as well. For those who would like to help remotely, we have grant writing and other sponsorship type opportunities. We have had a recent shift in leadership so there is alot of new work to be done, and old work to finish up from the last three years of feeding our community ourselves. We hope you'll join us in moving forward!
