Project ReConnect is a one-day, one-stop annual service fair that provides community members experiencing homelessness and poverty with access to free services, resources and referrals.
Project ReConnect 2022 is shaping up to be a day of shared conversation, learning, fellowship, food, and entertainment!
For many years, the Downton Service Providers Committee has organized an annual service fair that provides community members experiencing homelessness, and low income or poverty, with access to free services, resources, and referrals. After a two-year Covid-19 hiatus, we are bringing it back as Project Reconnect. Generously sponsored by the United Way of Southern Vancouver Island (UWSVI) and the UWSI Labour Council. Project Reconnect will be held on Tuesday, August 23rd, 2022, at the Royal Athletic Park, 1014 Caledonia Ave & Vancouver Street Plaza.
