More than 400 people connected at this year’s River Region Connects, an annual event organized by the Mid-Alabama Coalition for the Homeless that brings together volunteers, agency partners and those in need for a one-day, one-stop shop of services for people experiencing homelessness.
Held at the Montgomery Multiplex on Aug. 16, representatives from government and community agencies brought their services under one roof to assist individuals and families with finding shelter, employment, educational opportunities, health care, legal assistance and other services. Members of the Alabama Power Service Organization (APSO) were among those volunteering in support of the event.
“The Alabama Power Service Organization has been involved with this event for 10 years,” said Mike Jordan, area manager for Alabama Power’s Southern Division, which is headquartered in Montgomery.
