Medical help for Milwaukee's homeless


MILWAUKEE (WKOW) -- Some much needed medical assistance is coming for several of Milwaukee's homeless population. It's all a part of the Project Homeless Connect program.

More than 300 homeless men and women from Milwaukee will receive medical screenings, dental and Social Security appointments, mental health assistance, haircuts and legal consultations.

The new program is Milwaukee's one-stop shop of comprehensive support services. The services will be offered during a one-day event that runs 10 a.m. -3 p.m. on Thursday, October 18. The screenings will take place at Marquette Alumni Memorial Union.
