Your Impact

“The Biggest Little City in the World” has a big problem…




You might think our homeless neighbors are mostly jobless veterans, people struggling with addiction or mental illness. The reality may surprise you…
Many are hardworking people who have lost their jobs, faced a foreclosure, been hammered by medical expenses, or other hardships that could strike any of us, at any time.
