Modeled after the Spokane Homeless Connect, in 2018 the Spokane Valley Connect was born. With more of a focus on providing resources to homeless and at-risk children & families, this free community services event offers an afternoon of one-stop shopping for a wide variety of needs.

The Spokane Valley Connect was prompted by statistics indicating the need for improved resources in the greater Spokane Valley. In 2016, the City of Spokane Valley and its various school districts educated 21,678 students. Of those students, 9,366 (42%) received free or reduced lunches due to their family income level. Over 800 students were identified as experiencing homelessness, and children experiencing hunger and homelessness struggle to learn and keep up with their classmates. The veteran and elderly populations are also struggling. The Spokane County 2017 Point-in-Time (PIT) count showed a 13% increase from 2016 for unsheltered veterans. In addition, 8.9% of the area’s elderly were living below state and federal poverty guidelines.

As the goal of both events is to empower attendees to quickly and easily access a wide variety of community resources, the events were officially brought under the same "Connect" umbrella in 2022. All resources that go toward the Spokane Homeless Connect are in turn shared with the Spokane Valley Connect.
