This year the GADs chose to support Project Connect, part of the Cincinnati School System, in order to thank and give back to the community that hosted us for the 2019 GAD Institute. Project Connect is the only program in the Greater Cincinnati area exclusively serving children experiencing homelessness. It provides advocacy paired with specialized education services and lifestyle enrichment opportunities throughout the year for children who have neither a voice, nor a choice, in being homeless. Through a collection of stuffed hygiene bags and a GoFundMe page, the GADs collected hundreds of needed hygiene products and raised $10,500, enabling Project Connect to expand their program to 13- and 14-year old children, and serve the roughly 1,700 already enrolled. A special thank you to EVERYONE who contributed!
