They're done all over the country in an effort to stop homelessness in cities.
On Friday, Project Homeless Connect came to Fort Collins not just to get people off the streets for the day, but for the rest of the year.
CSU, the Bohemian Foundation and Homeward 2020 all contributed.
Food, clothes, shoes, hair cuts and dental care…it's all under one roof.
"It's really hard. Everyday I have to carry everything with me," said Brenda Backencamp.
Backencamp has been living on the streets of Fort Collins since August.
She's on a waiting list for state housing, but the clock is ticking and she said the winter nights are brutal.
"Devastating. It's really hard, you know? Especially with the weather," said Backencamp.
But for one day, people who are homeless or in need of assistance in Fort Collins went to the Northside Aztlan Center where over 500 volunteers were paired with these individuals to walk them through the many resources available.
"Project Homeless Connect is a one day event where it gives us the opportunity as a community to pull in the many resources and allow anybody who is currently homeless or near homeless to get access to those resources that they may need," said Vanessa Fenley, Homeward 2020.
From legal advice, to housing, to the shoe department needs were meant.
"Haircuts, health care and dental. All things these people won't get," said Tim Larney.
Larney just moved to Fort Collins and although he says he likes to travel light, when you don't have a whole lot anything helps.
"I bought a bunch of books for my granddaughter," said Larney.
"The underlying emphasis of PHC is we want to connect people with resources today, but ultimately we want those resources to help move them out of homelessness for the long term," said Fenley.
For Brenda and Tim, April 11th could be the one day that changes the other 364.
