  • Will help 350 families maintain safe and stable housing.
  • Will assist over 1000 additional people who need access to safe shelter, nutritional meals, and the household goods to move beyond homelessness.
  • Brought together over 1,500 community members to demonstrate a community commitment to ending family homelessness.

Everyone who participated in the WALK made a difference!
