THE STORY:

This week at work, we received at least a dozen calls from people who were homeless.

They were looking for help getting housing and dealing with the many challenges and circumstance keeping them from getting housed.   Click here to see the video and hear some of their stories.

It was hard for me to tell these desperate men and women, fathers and mothers, sometimes young adults, that we couldn't help them right now.  We had to suspend our case management program as of July 1, due to federal funding cuts (a loss of $240,000!).

Will you help us restore this critical service, the first step up for many people seeking help?  Will you help us offer hope again?

The Opportunity

CrowdRise is sponsoring this Flash Challenge with a $10,000 prize for the nonprofit that raises the most money between Noon, Tuesday, July 12 and Noon, Tuesday, July 19!

While our ultimate goal is to raise $240,000, this week we're aiming to raise at least 10% of that or $24,000.  Plus the $10,000 prize!

Your gift now can help us win $10,000 AND help us restore the Passages Case Management program.

Please Donate Now AND Share this campaign with your friends!  The more people who help spread the word, make this campaign "go viral," the more successful we will be.

Thank you.
