 Project Homeless Connect originated in San Francisco in 2004 when Mayor Gavin Newsom challenged his county workers to create a better system of care for the homeless community. 

The one-day service model they created proved extremely effective and since its inception, Project Homeless Connect has spread to more than 220 cities in three different countries.
