Project Homeless Connect (PHC) recently announced its honorary chair, Wood County Commissioner Doris Herringshaw.
Herringshaw's wealth of experience in Wood County combined with her interest and compassion for individuals and families makes her the ideal match for this position.
PHC is an innovative collaboration spearheaded by our Wood County Home Aid Coalition. PHC is designed to provide immediate goods and services to homeless individuals and those nearing homelessness. PHC provides basic needs and critical services in one day at one location.
The inaugural event will be held in Wood County on Wednesday, Oct. 1 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at St. Mark's Lutheran Church at 315 S. College Dr. in Bowling Green. Ragan Claypool of WSOS and Jennifer Kephart of Habitat for Humanity of Wood County are serving as co-chairs for the event. Don Neifer, parish administrator for St. Mark's, is serving as logistics chair.
The next PHC steering committee meeting will be held on June 13 at 8 a.m. at Grounds For Thought, 174 S. Main St. Bowling Green, and is open to anyone interested in participating.
To learn more about the event and how to help, Project Homeless Connect organizers are inviting the public to a "PHC Community Conversation" on Thursday from 5:30 to 6 p.m. at St. Mark's Lutheran Church.
