Mission & Values

– PHC’s mission –

Our Mission

Empowering individuals experiencing homelessness by meeting them where they are and walking with them on their unique journeys toward stability and self-reliance.


Our multi-pronged approach built upon trusting relationships includes our street outreach team, access center, shelter services, and housing resources with case management. Utilizing peer-support services, trauma-informed care, a DEI lens, and other current best practices, we are ending houselessness and changing the lives of the friends we serve. 


Project Homeless Connect has an organizational commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion to ensure that our programs and workplace are equitable in both access and outcomes. The policies and intent at PHC are to provide equal opportunity for all persons in terms of employment, board participation, and service recipiency—regardless of race, color, religion, national origin, marital status, political affiliation, sexual orientation, gender identity, socioeconomic status, disability, or age. PHC responds affirmatively in its practices. 

Our Values



Our vision is to ensure all people in Washington County have a stable place to call home by collaboratively working with partner agencies and government bodies to provide a high-quality, integrated system of services that includes trauma-informed street outreach, well-equipped access centers, congregate and non-congregate shelter formats, and housing assistance programs.
