“I have yet to meet anyone who doesn’t want to support the community in some way,” said Meghan Freebeck, CEO, Project Homeless Connect and Simply the Basics. Meghan is serving San Francisco by connecting people’s skills and resources with various needs in our community. To quote Meghan, “It’s a lot like match making volunteer’s time and skill sets to ensure they align with a client’s or nonprofit’s goals.”
Project Homeless Connect CEO Meghan Freebeck said that when it comes to serving unhoused residents, the main priority should always be housing. "All steps taken should be steps that are working toward that goal," she said. http://hoodline.com/2018/01/city-installs-barricades-to-block-encampments-near-upper-market-safeway
