More than 1,000 homeless men and women were connected to some much needed-free services on Wednesday.

The Metro Homelessness Commission held its “Project Homeless Connect” at the Tennessee State Fairgrounds.  

Dozens of vendors were set up where attendees could take advantage of new shoes, haircuts, lunch and resume advice for free.

Officials told Nashville's News 2 the main goal of the event is to help meet the basic need of shelter.

Nashville held its first “Project Homeless Connect” in 2008 at the Municipal Auditorium.

The event moved to the fairgrounds two years ago.
