We are having a fundraiser to help create a park and garden for the homeless where they created their tent community. We would love for you to join us.
Here’s some of our media coverage from the last year.
We’d like to extend a special thank you to Doug Livingston of The Akron Beacon Journal who broke the story of our tent village and day center and has covered our charity in depth and with great care for the last 2 years.
