On one day, at one location, Homeless Connect Edmonton works with guests experiencing homelessness or at risk of becoming homeless to access essential and dignity-enhancing services. Our guests have the opportunity to create genuine connections within the community, sharing their stories with volunteers and building relationships with representatives from various community organizations that they can carry on after the event. Homeward Trust coordinates Homeless Connect Edmonton through collaboration with Edmonton Economic Development, Shaw Conference Centre, and community leaders representing various sector organizations and agencies. Doors open from 10:00am to 3:00pm.
