Fewer People Were Seeking Medical and Dental Services at This Year's Project Connect

The event held at the Deschutes County Fairgrounds provided free services for homeless and low income people from around central Oregon.


More than 17 hundred people were helped, but demand for medical and dental services were down from past years.


It's believed the additional insurance coverage provided through the Affordable Care Act help meet some of that need.


In previous years, as many as 24-hundred people came out to Proejct Connect seeking medical and dental services.


One of this year's most popular service offerings was free veterinary care.  


More than 450 animals were treated.
