Under One Umbrella Homeless Connect is a one-day service fair planned for Saturday, March 19, 2016 for people who are homeless or at risk of being homeless.

The purpose of the event is to bring together a range of services, information and activities for people who are homeless or or at risk of homelessness in East Vancouver. Highlights include the following services: street nurses, addiction services, hearing screening clinic, foot care, housing information, health services, haircuts, legal assistance, pet care, including warm clothing for anyone in need.

The event also provides a healthy meal, free food for the pantry, local entertainment, door prizes and an evaluation of the event.  Another goal of the “Under One Umbrella Homeless Connect” is promoting change through volunteerism.

Last year, over fifty volunteers from the community generously donated their time at the event, some of whom were themselves currently or formerly homeless.
