    2017 Campaign for Shelter and Dignity

    We believe that no one should be homeless, with too little to eat or with no one to help them. But that is what happens. Many folks are alone, abused, elderly or disabled. Struggling to live each day, they do the best the cay but for far too many, that means just barely surviving. But together we can change that. Support our 2017 Campaign for Shelter and Dignity and change lives in your community.

    Something is Happening

    Each year we witness millions of America's most vulnerable people rise up from the margins with a new perspective, a new hope for what life can mean to them—and to others. We may walk beside those we serve until they can walk on their own. We may give them the skills and tools they need to succeed, but it is their spirit and their determination that drives them to succeed, and then—we watch them pay it forward.
