Project Homeless Connect
Project Community Connect brings much-needed resources to individuals and families across the region through in-person and virtual workshops aimed toward the ALICE population, focusing writing resumes, financial stability, food access and more.
Helping the DC Area Homeless & Underserved Community Members
United Way NCA’s annual Project Community Connect (formerly called Project Homeless Connect) focuses on achieving equity for all of our community members, regardless of race, gender, income and ability. The event will be held from Oct. 18-23, 2021, providing essential services to those at risk of or experiencing homelessness, as well as the region’s ALICE population.

Who is ALICE?
ALICE (Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed) households earn above the Federal Poverty Level, yet they are not eligible for assistance and can’t afford the basic household necessities – including housing, child care, food, transportation, health care and a basic smartphone plan. Project Community Connect brings much-needed resources to individuals and families across the region through in-person and virtual workshops aimed toward the ALICE population, focusing writing resumes, financial stability, food access and more.
What Will Project Community Connect Involve?
In 2020, we hosted both in-person resource kit deliveries, as well as virtual workshops. United Way NCA partnered with community organizations, providers and partners, such as Starbucks and DC Central Kitchen, to provide resource kits and to host Project Community Connect’s virtual workshops focusing on the following themes:
• Food Access
• Basic Needs
• Economic Opportunity
We will be continuing this theme of a larger conference-style event spanning a week and including multiple pop-up events around the National Capital Area during Project Community Connect 2021.
