Incredible “No Place Like Home” Breakfast raises $122,000 for work with homeless families

Wow. What an incredible morning that was. Friends and family from across the community, together to make an impact at a time of real crisis in our country. 2 incredible families shared their stories, with tears flowing freely – victory emerging from times of real pain, vulnerably shared with a room mostly unknown. The common thread was an ache for the wrong things to be made right – for little children to have a bed for their bedtime story. For the courageous ones who flee in the middle of the night for the sake of their children to be taken in and cared for.

Generous hearts in that room contributed over $122,000 in gifts and pledges for the day to day operations of our work with homeless families – and we couldn’t be more grateful. We know the lives that this will change – good on you, folks. A true class act, you are. We are honored to be a part of a community like this!

Thank you from the families and staff of Helping Hand House!
