The Nevada Homeless Alliance Family Connect 2018  event is a little different from Project Homeless Connect. It is smaller, and more intimate and focuses on families and children. The amount of items we need to be successful is considerably less than Project Homeless Connect. At Family Connect, we are hoping to serve 500 families. With our housing providers, we are anticipating providing housing for up to 50 families THAT DAY. They will walk away from the event with a voucher to move directly into permanent housing. But they will be missing the basics to change that house into a home. With donations from the Wish List below, we will be putting together Welcome Home Kits for them to take with them with kitchen, bathroom and bedroom supplies.
