Mike Volunteers at Homeless Connect Edmonton Sunday, 21 October 2012 On Sunday, October 21, Mike volunteered at Homeless Connect.  Homeless Connect Edmonton is a broad-based, community-inspired initiative, providing free appropriate services to homeless people and those at risk of becoming homeless, on one day and at one location, twice every year.  The event usually takes place in May and then again in October.

Its mission is to provide services that help open doors out of homelessness, build lasting partnerships, raise public awareness of homelessness in the community,and provide a vehicle for community involvement in addressing the issue of homelessness.

Services include mental health assessments, library services, foot care, haircuts, immunizations, birth control, pre-natal support, laundry, housing information, employment and training services, and much more.

It is a terrific event, and one that Mike always considers a highlight of his year.
