THE STORY:

HIKE FOR SHELTER presented by UnitedHealthcare

Benefiting: SHELTER, Inc. of Contra Costa County

SUNDAY, OCTOBER 19, 2014  from 8:00am -3:00pm

MT. DIABLO STATE PARK

SHELTER, Inc. is hosting its Fifth Annual Hike for SHELTER to end homelessness in Contra Costa County on Sunday, October 19, 2014 at Mt. Diablo State Park in Danville.

Hello!

Thank you for checking out my fundraising page!

A little about why I work for SHELTER, Inc. and why I am doing this fundraiser.

I have been here for almost 7 years and I have never been happier! I work here because I whole heartedly believe in the mission of SHELTER, Inc. "to prevent and end homelessness among the low-income residents of Contra Costa County by providing resouces that lead to self-sufficiency". It's this last part that I really like.

The programs and the staff who work with these men, women & children are here to not just put on a bandage but to really show these families how to become self-sufficient. And its working!

Preventing Homelessness: $1,000 in financial assistance prevents a family from becoming homeless. The impact is that 97% of those helped stayed off the streets and in their homes. This is less than 10% of the cost of helping them if they were to become homeless.

Ending the Cycle of Homelessness: Homeless families and individuals are placed in safe, temporary homes and provided services to help them regain self-sufficiency. The impact here is that 76% moved to permanent housing!

Would you like to be a part of this success? If so, please donate through our secure website. While I'm not actually "hiking" I will be at the event working!

Thank you!

Elaine, I love your enthusiasm and what a wonderful cause. This is great way to deal with that feeling we all get when we see someone in need and wonder what, if anything, we can do to help. 4 years ago
