More than 50 vendors provide adults and children with housing opportunities, hygiene products, mental health services, substance abuse treatment, SSI benefits, employment counseling and job placement, dental services, health screenings and services, family planning, food stamp applications, breakfast, lunch, and backpacks filled with snacks and other supplies.

Free transportation is provided to and from the event as well as to the Registry of Motor Vehicles so that folks can obtain their state identifications.
