People line up for various services from government agencies, nonprofits, and other organizations during Homeless Connect, held Saturday at River of Life Church in Alton. Multiple agencies and nonprofits provide everything from health screenings to help with transportation for the homeless or those trying to avoid homelessness. Prior to COVID, it was an annual event, and this was the first held since 2019. IMPACT CIL ILS-Specialists Angela Botz and Wendy Settles are shown here with the outreach booth.
