About Project Homeless Connect

Project Homeless Connect Omaha ("PHCO"), is a 501C(3) organization. 100% of all donations to PHCO are used for the homeless.

Our Beginnings

The first event launched on April 11, 2008 on the campus of Creighton University, hosted by Father John P. Schlegel, S.J. President of Creighton University. Today, Fr. Daniel S. Hendrickson, S.J. is the new President of Creighton University and host. We, and the area's homeless, are very grateful for their foresight.
