Kenai Conversation: Project Homeless Connect hits the streets

Jan 27, 2021

In the past, Project Homeless Connect has been a one-day event, gathering people who lack adequate, stable housing and the agencies, organizations and volunteers who can help. Since large gatherings aren't safe during COVID, project organizers are rethinking how to get the information they need and provide the services this population needs without gathering all at once. Thanks to Leslie Rohr, executive director with Love Inc. and chair of the Coalition on Housing and Homelessness for the Kenai Peninsula; Jodi Stuart with the Department of Corrections, who is PR chair for Project Homeless Connect; Frank Alioto, spiritual care coordinator at Central Peninsula Hospital and co-chair of Project Homeless Connect; Derek Black, discipleship pastor at Freedom House sober living in Soldotna, and Greg Meyer, executive director of the Kenai Peninsula Food Bank.
