The city is holding its Project Homeless Connect event today at the Scope Exhibition Hall.
The event, begun five years ago, helps homeless people get access to local, state and federal aid in one location. They will be able to get help with legal needs and identification cards along with food stamps, eye and dental exams, haircuts and other services.
Employers also will conduct interviews.
