THREE YEAR ANNIVERSARY TOUR
We served up hot cider or coffee and toured our community and new neighbors behind the scenes of our building under renovation. We shared how we're disrupting homelessness with dignified, holistic housing.

Tickets were by donation. All proceeds go to our $15K goal to finish furnishing each room and floor, bringing dignity to each person experiencing homelessness.
COLLECTIVE 3 YEAR TOUR
On Nov. 20th we will recognize 3 years of disrupting homelessness with dignity and usher in this next chapter of impact. We are raising $15,000 to finish furnishing all four floors to help 12 people out of homelessness over the next year.
It's been a hard year for so many—ourselves included. Constantly navigating setbacks and new normals, trying to emerge from the "loneliness pandemic" has been difficult.. We all now know the need for quality community. This year's theme is "Communal Rebuilding," both relationally and structurally. To our community, thank you for being a part of literally building a physical place of belonging, hope and opportunity in our city.
THIS JUST IN
