MARC staff, under the leadership of Crisis Center Program Director Sue Tallardy, have taken the lead in coordinating Project Connect for the Dutchess County Housing Consortium’s Continuum of Care. We have taken HUD’s national “Point in Time” initiative to count the number of homeless individuals and families one step further. Project Connect is a resource fair that will offer services and resources that might not be otherwise available to homeless individuals and others in need. It will be held in the Family Partnership cafeteria on Monday, January 26th from 11 AM to 5 PM. A highlight will be free haircuts provided by beauticians from Marion Salon Spa in Pleasant Valley. Thank you Sue, Marion and all the other volunteers.
