East Palo Alto event aims to help homeless


More than 25 community and governmental agencies providing services to homeless adults, youth and families will gather in East Palo Alto on Thursday (Nov. 18) for EPA Connect II.

The event aims to connect the homeless and those at risk of becoming homeless with agencies providing assistance with food, shelter, medical care, recovery services, veterans benefits and employment services.

"By bringing state, local and non-profit agencies under one roof, we're creating a clearinghouse to deliver services quickly and efficiently," Paul Bains, Project WeHOPE executive director pastor, said.

Bicycle repairs, flu shots, haircuts and hot meals will also be available to those who attend. The event is scheduled to take place from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at 1858-B Bay Road in East Palo Alto.
