“Until you’ve had the chance to meet someone in need of help, face-to-face, shake their hand, and see the look of appreciation in their eyes, you can’t realize how important an event like this (Skagit Project Homeless Connect) is and how deeply rewarding it is to be a part of it. We made a difference in the lives of over 700 people in a few short hours! That’s powerful stuff!”

- Terry Belcoe, Former Community Action Board President
