First Annual Youth Connect

New this year, is the addition of a second day dedicated to reaching families and unsheltered youth. Connecting them with many of the same resources along with so much more.

What is it?

The Community Homeless Connect brings together over 50 agencies and 300 volunteers to connect chronically homeless adults to health care, IDs, employment skills, housing resources, and more in one location on one day. Last year, over 300 volunteers connected over 400 individuals in housing crisis with need services. Community Action Agency and Salem Leadership Foundation have been working together for over 10 years to make this event possible.
