first public health school in the United
States to include the word “global” in its

Project connects the

Amanda Abbott and Shawn Maines have
a special connection.
Thursday was Abbott’s second time attend
ing Project Homeless Connect at the Hargraves
Community Center on Roberson Street
“I came last year, and Shawn was my
guide, too,” said Abbott, who is homeless. “I
was so nervous. I was a wreck.”
Maines, who volunteered as a service escort,
accompanied Abbott again Thursday.
“She kind of latched on, and we stayed
together the entire time,” he said. “We were
a dynamic duo.”
Now in its second year, Homeless Connect
is part of a countywide effort to eliminate

As for the “global” aspect of the name,
administrators said they see it as an
announcement of a focus the school has
maintained since the 19505, rather than
a shift in priorities.
