We want to give a big shoutout to our Homeless Outreach team on an amazing accomplishment. In 2018, this hardworking crew helped 159 homeless individuals secure safe housing. Their initial goal was to house at least 6 people each month, and they ended up hitting that goal every two weeks! We’re lucky to have such compassionate people on our staff and we applaud their commitment to serving the underserved in our community! Congratulations Abbie, Joe, Skylar and Nick!
