Clatsop Community Action, in partnership with over 40 other nonprofit, governmental and faith-based agencies, hosts the eighth annual Project Homeless Connect from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday at Seaside Convention Center, 415 First Ave. Sunset Empire Transportation District has designated this day as a Ridership Appreciation Day, so all bus services in Clatsop County will be at no cost to all riders for the entire day.

Numerous services are provided during this one-day, one-stop event, including medical screenings, hearing testing, eye exams, immunizations, haircuts, personal care items, clothing vouchers and a hot meal. Many informational and assistance services are also available for housing, mail service, food stamps, identification, Social Security, employment, education and legal aid.

Homeless people, including those people living with others due to losing their own housing, and especially near-homeless people at imminent risk of becoming homeless, are encouraged to attend this free event.

Monetary donations for Project Homeless Connect, which are tax deductible, can be mailed to Clatsop Community Action, 364 Ninth St., Astoria, OR 97103.
