Sacramento Homeless Connect 2009 Flyer

I have been worried that this year's Sacramento Homeless Connect wasn't getting the word out. But today a flyer was being passed out at Friendship Park which provides some information about the event to be held Saturday.

The event will be held at Sacramento City College; 3835 Freeport Blvd., on Saturday May 30 between the hours of 10am and 3pm.

It is advertised as "A day of helpful services for people who are homeless or at risk of losing their home." The event includes "a free lunch, Blues music and easy access to services. All in one place."

Attendees cannot bring their pets. [Pets may be left at the kennel at Loaves & Fishes.] Childcare will be provided at the event. Belongings may be left at Friendship Park [presumably, the Day Storage shed will be open on the day of the event]. Update 5/29: Word is that storage will be available in a train/ship container at Loaves & Fishes' Delany Center parking lot. Friendship Park will not be open on Saturday.

City College is easily accessible by light rail at the City College station via the Blue line.

Also, shuttles will take visitors to and from the event from stops near Loaves & Fishes. It is also my understanding that a shuttle will leave the Winter shelter to take addendees, who are utilizing the shelter there, to and from the event.
