Organizers of a major effort to aid the homeless in Sitka last winter are hoping to repeat their success this coming January. The nonprofit Easter Group spearheaded a multi-agency collaboration to provide basic services for Sitka’s homeless called “Project Homeless Connect.” Over forty-five individuals attended the event in Harrigan Centennial Hall – an unexpectedly high turnout that caught the attention of municipal government and the public alike.
