The Madison County Partnership To End Homelessness will assemble Wednesday at the Quad City Community Development Center in Madison to conduct its eighth annual Project Homeless Connect event. Project Homeless Connect is part of a nationwide initiative to conduct a head-count of the homeless, and to provide them with services they may need.
David Harrison of Madison County Community Development, one of the organizers of the event, tells The Big Z a homeless person may not fit the stereotype.
