Helping the Inland Northwest's Most Vulnerable Since 1896

November 14-22, 2015

National Hunger & Homelessness Awareness Week is held each year the week before Thanksgiving. This is a time for us all to start to think about what we are thankful for, and a perfect time to share our compassion with our neighbors who are experiencing homelessness.


Participating in local events recognizing National Hunger and Homeless Awareness Week not only brings greater awareness of efforts to end hunger and homelessness in our community and also helps people realize the difficulties that homeless persons face on a daily basis. The plight of those without a home, or those living in poverty, can be both lonely and difficult. Addressing their struggles by organizing and participating in this week may bring greater solidarity and understanding, as well as promote future involvement.

Stay tuned for 2015 local events!
