and with the support of Creighton University, Project Homeless Connect Omaha has helped over 3000 of the area's homeless find housing, needed services, healthcare, hair styles and over 300 sets dentures and 500 pair of glasses.
Over 3,500 volunteers have committed their time to making this event one the most significant events in the metro's history for the homeless. The engagement and cooperation of public officials in municipal, county, and state government, as well as local business leaders has been remarkable in creating a cooperative service strategy that, as Mike Saklar Executive Director at Siena/Francis House put it, "initiates a first time action" for many of the area's homeless.
In 2015 over 500 of the area's homeless made their way through over 40 service providers distributed around two basketball courts filled with medical and dental staff. Many of the homeless received haircuts from Xenon Academy.
