Many agencies and organizations are set up to help the more vulnerable members of any community. 

And once in a while, they join forces to compare notes and consider new approaches. 

That is the function of Project Community Connect, happening in Jackson County since 2009.  It brings together nonprofits, government agencies, businesses and more to help people in need, primarily people dealing with homelessness.  Linda Reid of the city of Ashland and Carrie Prechtel of 211info visit with details.
