We would like to express our sincerest gratitude to everyone who made this year’s event such an overwhelming success, lifting 103 of our neighbors out of homelessness – a substantial increase from the 84 we were able to house after last year’s event!

Below, please enjoy a few pictures from this year’s Gala fundraiser.

Thank again for your continued support.

We very much look forward to seeing you at next year’s event!
