Volunteers Needed for Homeless Connect Day

The fourth annual Project Yes In My Backyard (Y!MBY) Homeless Connect Day will be happening on Thursday, June 25.

Project Y!MBY Connect Day brings together local private and public service providers and hundreds of volunteers in one location, for one day of coordinated services for the homeless. This event will provide homeless individuals with everything from food and clothing to medical exams and permanent housing resources, and they need your help!

The event coordinators are looking for community volunteers to help with the following:

  • Set up
  • Check-in
  • Runners
  • Client support
  • Clean up
  • Exit surveys

This year’s Connect Day will be held at the Music Box (6126 Hollywood Blvd.), and volunteering shifts are flexible between 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

This is a wonderful opportunity to help better our community and connect homeless individuals to the assistance, amenities and services that they need!
