About the Virtual Homeless Shelter Benefit

Each spring, we host our annual shelter benefit, and last year we raised more than $250,000 from generous donors and sponsors who recognize the shelter’s role in providing a safe haven for its residents and helping them rebuild their lives. The shelter relies on this event to provide vitally important support for its operations and to ensure essential services for residents throughout the year.

Due to COVID-19, it was necessary to cancel our in-person benefit both last year and this year and transform it into a virtual event. This virtual benefit enables those who believe in the importance of the shelter to demonstrate their support by making donations at various impact levels. Be sure to review the many ways you can make an impact and transform lives. In addition, please share this page with your family and friends. Your involvement, your compassion and your support is critical to our success. You can play a key role in decreasing homelessness in our community.

Thank you for your help and support!
