Regis community rallies to help end homelessness, restore hope

Lending a hand where it’s needed most is how you’ll often find members of the Regis University community. That will be the case Nov. 17, when students, faculty and staff return for a ninth year to help with an event that hits at the core of Regis’ mission. Project Homeless Connect – a free, one-day event – invites those experiencing homelessness in the Denver area to access a variety of services and resources, including health services provided by students and faculty of Regis’ Rueckert-Hartman College for Health Professions.

“I think Project Homeless Connect allows us to know people in a way that not only is the heart of our mission, but stays with us to create and live that mission of the magis, of men and women in service of others, for a lifetime,” said Maryjo Coast, who coordinates Regis’ volunteer efforts for the project. “That is why we are there, to create and sustain the mission in each of us wherever we go, whatever we do.”

Join the Regis community in service to others Nov. 17.
