Connect For Good, Holiday Giving For Homeless To Housing

A sign from the “Connect for Good” campaign.

For the problem of homelessness here in Chattanooga, there is no one quick fix - but there are targeted efforts to help break the cycle.

One of those efforts is Connect for Good, a holiday giving campaign to benefit a homeless-to-housing initiative known as the Flexible Housing Fund.

Connect for Good is led by EPB, the Chattanooga Regional Homeless Coalition and the City of Chattanooga.

Mike Smith is the Coalition’s executive director - and Sophie Moore is with EPB.
