We consider the people who come to the PCC event to be our guests and want them to feel welcome. Our volunteers receive training on the importance of treating each individual who comes to the PCC event with dignity and respect and keeping personal information confidential. We want PCC guests to be at ease knowing we will do everything we can to help them get the services they need.
We invite anyone to attend PCC who is:
– Homeless or at risk of becoming homeless.
– “Living on little” and in need of help to maintain housing.
– In need of information on the specific services offered by the Service Providers who will be at the event
At the event, PCC provides a free bag lunch to everyone who attends. Childcare is offered onsite at no cost. Free transportation to and from the event can be arranged. The Scott-Carver PCC helps 400 – 500 individuals each year. The people PCC helps our neighbors in Scott County and Carver County who are struggling to meet basic needs. This may be due to a medical emergency, a disability, untreated mental illness, physical illness, disaster, job loss, domestic violence or addiction. Many have experienced a major financial crisis and have lost their housing or face eviction. Many are cycling in and out of homelessness. If you know of someone who needs assistance, please invite them to Project Community Connect.
