This team is made up of SHELTER, Inc., employees who feel strongly about our work to prevent and end homelessness for families and individuals in our community.
Did you know that over 15,000 men, women and children will endure homelessness in Contra Costa County this year alone? Did you know that a person earning minimum wage in Contra Costa ($9.00 per hour) must work almost 4 full times jobs to afford a two-bedroom apartment?
On October 19th, we look forward to joining with this community to hike and raise awareness about homelessness. Hike for SHELTER will raise a critical $100,000 to support the critical services SHELTER, Inc. offers.
We need your help! Will you help make an impact in the lives of homeless families and individuals in Contra Costa County by making a financial donation or joining the hike? Your contribution, no matter what the amount, will be used to help someone get to their job, feed a family for a week, give a safe place to sleep for a homeless family or help tutor a child.
