Project Homeless Connect — Introductory and Training Videos

Thank you for your interest in Project Homeless Connect.  Below are two videos that will give you a feel for the event, the Legal Resource Area, and your role as a volunteer.

 

Introduction to Project Homeless Connect (2013) from Denver Human Services on YouTube.

 

The following rough video includes excerpts from a Legal Training held on May 5, 2008.  Please ignore the references in the video to the details of the event (time of volunteer shifts, location, color of t-shirts, etc.) since these change each time.  The video is rather long (almost 1 1/2 hours).  If you want to view only certain segments, here is a breakdown on the approximate start time of each section:
