Helping thousands of your neighbors each year
For nearly 120 years we, have taken on the region’s most difficult tasks to help those in the greatest need, including: street youth; chronically homeless women; foster youth; teen parents; medically fragile homeless adults; and homeless veterans. And, with your help, we make a difference. Because we not only perceive the burdens of others, we know firsthand what it means to make them lighter. This is why we do what we do.
17th Annual Hope House Celebrity Fashion Show
At Hope House each shelter guest gets much more than just a warm bed and a hot shower—she gets the resources and support she needs to rebuild her life. Whether her homelessness is the result of a lost job, a medical catastrophe, drug addiction or mental health issues, we have enough hope for any woman—but we don’t always have enough money. That’s why our annual Celebrity Fashion Show & Luncheon is so important.
