BENEFITING: Small Sums Change Lives!

EVENT DATE: Nov 03, 2012

David Farrar

THE STORY:

Given the right tools, opportunities and guidance, homeless individuals can find living wage employment. Through living wage employment, they will find a place to call home.

For example, Bethany's Story - Bethany was living in a group home when she came to us for assistance. She wanted to return to work as a cook, but could not afford the required uniform. We assisted her with the items she needed and she soon began her job. When we last saw Bethany, she had moved into her own place and she told us she’s never been happier.

The At Home Group™ DBA Small Sums is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization committed to eradicating homelessness in Minnesota.  The At Home Group helps many people in need with small sums that enable them to buy public transport tickets for interviews, uniforms for jobs and tools for trades like cooking, hairstyling and nursing.

You can see some more of their success stories here and some of the people currently in need here.

The gala tickets are $35 each or $25 each for two or more.
